The most comprehensive guid to Louisiana's Carnival season: How To Mardi Gras
Originally uploaded by trudeau.
Costumes, music, food, traditions, krewes: this little guide - 36 pages, 36 illustrations - has all the info you need to maximize your enjoyment of the season. It's cool for visitors, for your relatives, for students or those who want a quick study of what all the craziness is about. People send them out across the nation, across the pond, to describe to their friends what is going on and why they're wearing those marvelous tuxes and gowns.
Buy a copy at Tubb's Hardware / Cajun Gifts and Mardi Gras Center on Benton Rd across from the Bossier Civic Center. Don Tubbs has assembled a most amazing array of masks, beads, CD's, umbrellas, you name it.
You will also find it at two other terrific shops, Enchanted Garden on Line Avenue or at Tower Books, across the street from SteinMart.
Or you may call author-publisher Robert Trudeau at 318-861-6809. Hey, ya'll: laisser les bon temps rouler!
