One of my favorite place to visit in East Texas surrounded by the beauty of the piney woods.Mardi Gras 2014 will feature a ton of activities for all ages, parades, live entertainment and more. The headlining act this year is Texas artist Ray Wylie Hubbard March 1 on the main stage from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

According to the website

Mardi Gras was celebrated in Jefferson, Texas back in the 19th century, surely a sign of the city’s cultural ties with New Orleans via the waterways of the Big Cypress Bayou, Caddo Lake, Twelve Mile Bayou and the Red River.


When the town’s tremendous commerce slowed to a crawl, in the late 1800s, so did much of the city’s cultural life. The year 1990, however, marked the rebirth of Jefferson’s Mardi Gras celebration, but slightly on a smaller scale than the one of today.
