http://www.holidays.net/mardigras/story.htm and http://www.eastjeffersonparish.com/culture/MARDIGRA/HISTORY/history.htm Answers this question. To put it bluntly, no. Mardi Gras has never been held anywhere in the US but New Orleans. Its history dates back to early Europe but the celebration we know today was started in New Orleans and no other city celebrated it. Hope that helps. Mardi Gras is celebrated in Mobile, New Orleans and other Gulf Coast cities.This festive event was started in Mobile and according to some accounts, dates back to 1703. The celebration was originally called Boef Gras (Fat Beef).
