Six Ways to Celebrate Mardi Gras in the Red Stick.
The Big Easy isn’t the only place that celebrates Carnival season in a big way. The good times roll in Baton Rouge before Fat Tuesday with six parades (three daytime parades and three at night).
Get your costume together (or at least don purple, green and gold) and celebrate this wonderful Louisiana tradition in an atmosphere perfect for the whole family. Glittering floats, Carnival royalty, snazzy marching bands, throws, throws, throws! Come experience it all in the State Capital.
Richmond Inn and Suites is close to downtown and all the action. Make us your home base for all the revelry.
