Although Mardi Gras in New Orleans gets worldwide attention, north Louisiana has become a major hub when it comes to celebrating Carnival. The cities of north Louisiana have embraced the seasonal traditions of their sister to the south, including King Cakes and glamorous balls. Join us for an overnight Mardi Gras celebration that is more relaxed, and less risqué. Savor authentic Louisiana cuisine, dance to Cajun tunes, see outrageous Mardi Gras personalities, and try your hand gaming at our Sam's Town Casino hotel, where we will be spending the night. You will also enjoy the dazzling parade from a climate-controlled tent, complete with Cajun music and cuisine! Price includes roundtrip motorcoach transportation to Shreveport, overnight lodging at Sam's Town casino hotel, Mardi Gras party with Cajun food and drink, and all your taxes. We even give you a souvenir t-shirt and beads. What a deal--what a great time! Expect the unexpected when you take our Shreveport Mardi Gras tour--it's a tradition that will keep you coming back year after year!
