Laissez les bon temps Rouler!
It is almost here. The biggest party of the year…Mardi Gras! It is going to be a weekend of fun, parades, parties and food. Mardi Gras gives us all the opportunity to get our wild and crazy on before the somberness of Lent hits.
Here in Jefferson, we celebrate the green, gold, and purple… Texas style . There will be three parades, a carnival, food vendors, arts and crafts, and live music along with fun, frivolity and zany events during this 3-day celebration. Friday evening, we kick off Mardi Gras with the Doo Dah Parade along the brick streets of Jefferson’s Historic Riverfront District. Saturday features a Grand Parade with colorful floats, marching bands and more. Sunday allows the kiddos to get in on the action with a Children’s Parade.
One of the benefits of having a B&B in downtown Jefferson is that the Grand Parade and the Children’s Parade come right by the Carriage House Bed and Breakfast. So our guests can enjoy the parades from the comfort of our front porch. There aren’t any rooms left in town but if you are close by you can still make a day trip and celebrate Jefferson’s history during this colorful and entertaining event.
Get your beads ready!!
