Mardi Gras Traditions You Must Try from a New Orleans Native

 1.Parades have always been a tradition in my family. I love the Zulu parade on Mardi Gras day and the all female parades. 

2. Eating Fried Chicken on Popeyes day. Louisiana has so many awesome restaurants but Popeyes is open on Mardi Gras day and hang out nearby Dooky Chase restaurant on Mardi Gras day https://www.dookychaserestaurants.com

3. Dressing up in Mardi Gras wear and taking professional photos and King Cake on Kings Day. My favorite King Cakes this year are Antoines King and Queen Cakes and Traditional King Cake at  BSweet Bistro 

 4. Building floats with my kids using shoe boxes. They are usually requested for projects at schools in the area.

 5.Mardi Gras cocktails are always a great idea. Many restaurants have them and you can also make them easily.
