The History of Mardi Gras

It is that time when coastal cities along the gulf are celebrating their Mardi Gas, from Tampa Bay’s Gasparilla to Galveston’s Mardi Gras - with more Krewes than you can know celebrating their Krewe of Who as a catch all - to Mobile’s Krewe De La Dauphine,  and Panama City Beach’s Krewe of Dominique Youx.

The Krewe of Dominique Youx and the real “Cosair”

With all the festivities recently abounding all along the Gulf Coast, including St Andrew’s and Panama City Beach’s celebrations of The Krewe of St. Andrews, the St. Andrews Mardi Gras and The Krewe of Dominique Youx, this may be a good time to look back into history at someone partially related to all these festivities.
