How do you know Mardi Gras is here? When you head to Walmart and there is a parade preventing you from shopping, but this parade isn't on the street going down Johnston St. Nope, its smack dab in the middle of the Walmart where you are shopping, and all you can do is shake your head, smile and say "Only in Louisiana".

Going to Walmart while a parade is going through is only cool if you're not in a rush, then you can pause and take it all in. It's carnival time, and we live in the most unique state in the United States. You know other states have to be a little jealous. I can't blame them.

Be on the look-out and make sure you plan your day around the in-store Mardi Gras parade at Walmart.

So let the good times roll, and enjoy all that our great state gives us.
