Louisiana residents will tell you Alabama kind of gets under our skin. Well now, this might be a new low. We have to deal with Nick Saban and Alabama football every year, but now the State of Alabama has put up billboards around New Orleans claiming to be the real home of Mardi Gras.
Generally when you think of Mardi Gras parades, you think of big floats with people throwing beads. However, on Fat Tuesday, you can take part in a traditional New Orleans style walking parade in downtown Shreveport!
