… many names from around the world for the same rowdy festivity …

Mardi Gras! Carnival! Carnaval! Karneval! Carnevale!

  • “In Central and South American countries, each region developed its own unique Carnaval combination of Spanish, Native and African traditions …
  • In New Orleans, fashionable French costume parties combined with African-American song and dance for Mardi Gras. The streets swell with fancy floats and parading dancers costumed in as much as one hundred pounds of feathers and beads.
  • Masks play an important part in Carnival games, plays, parties, and parades …”
