    New Orleans was established in 1718, and by the 1730s, Mardi Gras was celebrated openly throughout the city. However, it was celebrated quite different than how we think of it today. It was celebrated through elegant society balls. The guests also remained anonymous bringing magic and mystery to the balls.

    About Mardi Gras! Galveston
    Mardi Gras, the traditional festival of feasting and merrymaking that precedes the season of Lent, was first publicly observed on Galveston Island in 1867. Following a sabbatical imposed in 1941 by war and challenging times, Mardi Gras! Galveston was revived in 1985 by Galveston-born preservationist and developer George P. Mitchell. The largest celebration of its kind in Texas and the third largest in the nation, Mardi Gras! Galveston brings the island’s streets to life with parade viewers shouting for beads, lively tunes played by the colorful marching bands, and the infectious merriment that dominates the island for two full weeks.
