Laissez les bon temps rouler in Washington, D.C.

While Mardi Gras is synonymous with New Orleans, have you heard of Washington Mardi Gras?

The story goes that in 1938, the LA Congressional delegation, disappointed about missing Mardi Gras, initially conceived of an idea to bring Mardi Gras to Washington, D.C. The custom caught its rhythm years later, and for over 60 years now, the Mystick Krewe of Louisianians has brought the pageantry, revelry and mystery of Mardi Gras to our nation’s capital, assembling political, business and civic influencers from across the state and the beltway.

It’s a three day marathon of meetings and merriment, forging statewide  relationships.
