As a bonus, we have included a colorful, topographical map of the area.
Mardi Gras in the Mountains

Mardi Gras in Red River is a six-day celebration inspired by the Louisiana Cajun traditions which made their way to the high country many years ago. Locals and vacationers alike look forward to parades, Grand Balls, and drink-making contests, turning out in ski gear and full Mardi Gras regalia for the events. Even those who can't break away from the slopes are adorned in Mardi Gras beads.

Just about everyone gets into the parade action, including tots on tricycles and family pets. It's a fun time for all, and a sight to behold! For Red River locals, it's a great way to chase away cabin fever and lose the mid-winter blues.
