Parades, vibrant masks, and beads galore are in full swing in New Orleans for Mardi Gras. And if you are making your way to the fun this year, lucky you! Mardi Gras is surely on many of our bucket lists, and you're about to be smack dab in the middle of all of the excitement. There's no doubt you'll be snapping away, because there will really be so much to see and experience. Whether you're covered in beads or making friends with a few jesters, you're gonna need some Instagram captions for Mardi Gras pics that might seemingly speak for themselves.
Mardi Gras dates all the way back to Medieval times, and boy, aren't thousands of people happy that the tradition is still carried out today. Mardi Gras is celebrated on the first day of Lent and on the final day of the Carnival season. In that case, the exact date actually changes each year, but no one's complaining about the highly-anticipated and iconic week spent celebrating in New Orleans.
Even if you're hosting a Mardi Gras-themed party at home, you'll be surprised by how many different poses you can actually do with multiple bead chains. Don't act like you're not going to consider them all. Your time celebrating Mardi Gras is already going to be extra lit, but any of these captions will give your post a little extra shimmer.
