We took a tour at the Carnival’s Museum on Government Street in Mobile while we were visiting in February. We had the fortunate good luck to have Craig Roberts as our tour guide and learned much about Mardi Gras. We highly recommend the tour and Craig as the tour guide and his book is most insightful to Mardi Gras in Mobile, Alabama.

Among many facts and tidbits about Mardi Gras that stuck in our mind, the one fact that has stood out the most is the “colors of Mardi Gras”.

Mobile’s Mardi Gras colors are purple and gold unlike the other carnivals whose colors are purple, green and gold.
