    The Shreveport-Bossier Mardi Gras Bash is one of the largest events in the South and it is FUN FUN FUN! Savor authentic Louisiana cuisine, dance to Cajun tunes, see outrageous Mardi Gras personalities, and catch a whole bunch of beads.

    From the stage of stars where Elvis got his start to the treasures to be discovered at the R.W.

    Ken and I are planning to go but both couples and singles are welcome. The Hilton where we will be staying offers free shuttles to the casinos if that interests you so we have a full weekend of options to entertain us. Gotta Go Tours by Patti is making all the arrangements. Don't let the weather concern you since we will have a large climate controlled tent with front row seats to watch the parade. Contact them to register and reserve your seat.
