Washington Mardi Gras

One of the greatest traditions for festival queens in Louisiana is the chance to participate in the Washington DC Mardi Gras of the Mystick Krewe of the Louisianians, a 61 year-old tradition run by the son of its original founder. 25 festival queens at a time, with another set of festivals attending in alternate years, represent the parishes in the nation's capital for 4 days.
