Mardi Gras in Alabama typically takes place in Mobile, Alabama. It is a festive event that takes over the entire city. On Fat Tuesday businesses shut down, schools are closed and the party begins. Beautiful floats fill the city streets from morning to early evening accompanied by high school Marching Bands and drill teams. Music floats through the air and fun is had by all. Just imagine an entire city gathering together, putting on some music and dancing the day away. Vendors line the streets to sell a variety of items including Mardi Gras T-Shirts, corndogs, pizza, Hamburgers, cokes and alcohol. Food is definitely not missing from Mardi Gras. Many families set up their own areas, complete with couches and grills to turn the event into a giant tailgating party. But don't worry if you didn't bring a grill and vendor food is not your thing...the Moon Pies and candies will rain from the floats all day.

One of the 'prized' items during Mardi Gras are the infamous Mardi Gras beads. Purple, green and gold beads adorn the necks of virtually everyone you will see on the street. So to sum up, "How is Mardi Gras in Alabama", well it's an awesomeexperience everyone needs to try, at least once.
