Additional Information

Mardi Gras, or “Fat Tuesday,” is the last day of the Carnival season and the day before Ash Wednesday, which marks the start of Lent. Carnival, a French import to Canada and the United States, traditionally lasts from January 6th until Mardi Gras, and allows the Catholic faithful to indulge in fatty foods and revelry before they are expected to give up some worldly pleasures during Lent. In modern times, the festival is a local tradition and tourist attraction.
