Mrs. Mardi Gras - Day Trip 2

Mrs. Mardi Gras - Day Trip 2



Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez… or Let the Good Times Roll! If you’ve ever heard of Mardi Gras, chances are you think of New Orleans. No doubt, the Big Easy has a strong carnival tradition; Mobile, Alabama does too. But the Mississippi Gulf Coast is no stranger to Mardi Gras celebrations. We’ve been parading in the streets since 1908 when the first Mardi Gras parade was held in Biloxi.

Gulf Coast Mardi Gras is similar to that of the larger cities that surround us. We have Krewes that ride on floats and throw beads to crowds. We also have crowned royalty and carnival balls. But we South Mississippians also have our own traditions when it comes to partying it up before Lent. Check out our Day Trippin’ Mississippi Gulf Coast – Episode 2 – “Mrs. Mardi Gras” video to see how South Mississippi Mardi Gras is unlike any other.

In Episode 2 – Mrs Mardi Gras, we filmed during the Elks Club Parade in downtown Ocean Springs, Mississippi.

We featured these locations in the video:

Front Beach Cottages – Cottage Rentals
Lee Tracy – Lady’s Clothing Boutique
Leo’s Wood Fired Pizza – Delicious food and entertainment
The Office Bar & Lounge – Popular after-hours bar for locals
Mosaic Restaurant & Bar – Authentic Hookah Bar and Restaurant
Downtown Ocean Springs, MS – Popular spot for locals and tourists for shopping, dining, and entertainment.

WALTER ANDERSON MUSEUM OF ART

WALTER ANDERSON MUSEUM OF ART

WALTER ANDERSON MUSEUM OF ART:

A visit to the Walter Anderson Museum of Art (WAMA) is an enchanting and unique experience.
The Walter Anderson Museum was opened in 1991 and is dedicated to the celebration of the works of Walter Inglis Anderson (1903-1965), an American master, whose depictions of the plants, animals, and people of the Gulf Coast have placed him among the foremost of American painters of the Twentieth Century; and to his brothers, Peter Anderson (1901-1984), master potter and founder of Shearwater Pottery; and James McConnell Anderson (1907-1998), noted painter and ceramist.
