Taditional Mamou Mardi Gras Run Explained [VIDEO]

The countdown to Mardi Gras 2014 is on, and if you have never experienced the traditional Mardi Gras run in Mamou, do yourself a favor and make plans to attend this tradition.

Unlike Mardi Gras celebrations in Lafayette or New Orleans, this traditional run involves horses and wagons. The “parade” rolls through downtown Mamou in the early morning hours, and then makes it way though the country side. Unlike other Mardi Gras celebrations, the Mamou Mardi Gras does not have beads and floats, but does have plenty of traditions. From chickens to dances on top of horses, the Mamou Mardi Gras has something for everyone to see.

Here is a video that explains many of the traditions that has made the Mamou Mardi Gras so special though all of the decades.
