Find out more about Mardi Gras

Shreveport-Bossier throws the best family-friendly Mardi Gras! Today, Shreveport is home to 15 krewes, each with its own personality. Mardi Gras float-riders toss more than eight million beads each year to seas of people waving their arms and shouting, "Throw me something, Mister!" The parades attract more than 400,000 visitors a year.
