Mardi Gras celebrations in the Dallas area

Mardi Gras literally means Fat Tuesday and takes place the day before Ash Wednesday originally for people to be able to eat rich foods before they have to fast for the Lenten season.  Now, Mardi Gras is a huge party that is celebrated days and weeks before.

According to Pegasus News, there are many places to celebrate in the Dallas area including Mardi Gras Oak Cliff. Last year there were over 5,000 people that attended the event.

There was a parade and large crawfish boil followed by a Dash of Beads run and the OCarnivale Masquerade Ball that took place at the Kessler Theater. Other celebrations include the Lake Dallas Mardi Gras Celebration on Fat Tuesday and will feature a crawfish eating contest and a costume contest with prizes.

The Dallas criminal defense lawyers of the law office of Mark T. Lassiter wish you and your family a fun and safe Mardi Gras.
