Today our city begins it's annual Mardi Gras celebration! Mardi Gras is on February 16th. For those who are not Catholic, today is the 12th day of Christmas and we believe that January 6th is the day the Three Kings's arrived to honor the birth of Jesus. Starting today and ending on Mardi Gras day will be King Cake parties, Magnificent Balls and of course Parades!
