2018 Mardi Gras Parades in Mississippi

We currently have 12 Mardi Gras Parades in Mississippi!

Mississippi also lays claim to being the birthplace of Mardi Gras largely because d'Iberville first stepped foot in America in what is today known as Ocean Springs, Mississippi. But Mardi Gras wasn't celebrated when the French first landed in Mississippi until the French Capital was moved to Biloxi, Mississippi in 1720. Mardi Gras was celebrated heavily in Mobile, Alabama before the French moved to Biloxi.
