When you think of Mardi Gras, what comes to mind? Beads, floats, music, and a bit of debauchery probably top your list. Early French settlers knew they had one last blow-out before the dreary Lenten season, and they made the most of it. Mamou is a small city with a big reputation. It’s billed as the ”Cajun Music Capital of the World,” and, as testimony of that distinction, is featured in many Cajun song titles. Every year, the town hosts the traditional Courir de Mardi Gras or ”Fat Tuesday Run” with the chasing of the chickens. For those in Mamou, Mardi Gras is more like a marathon, after all the dancing and partying the event culminates with a community gumbo, where plans are made for next year’s celebration. Welcome to ‘CAJUN MARDI GRAS & The Chicken Chase’
Dating back to the 12 century, the Venice Carnival is one of the oldest and most famous carnival celebrations in the world. Carnival was a Catholic tradition, a period of feasting, excess and extravagant celebration before the start of Lent, which is 40 days of fasting and sacrifice in the lead up to Easter. Every year 3 million people descend upon this city of canals to soak up the iconic scenery, admire the extravagant costumes and masks, and be part of an electric atmosphere. Today, Venice’s Carnival is a blend of 18th-century nostalgia and 21st-century consumerism. Though the festival has taken on many shapes throughout its long history, there’s still something enchanting about a floating city filled with people behind masks. Welcome to ‘The Masks of VENICE’
