Photos of Mardi Gras
in Acadiana

Below are links to photos of Mardi Gras activities in the Acadiana region of Southwest Louisiana.  Most of the photos show rural Mardi Gras courirs and other events within a 30-mile radius of Eunice. The photos were taken by David Simpson, who retired in May 2009 from LSU at Eunice.

A separate mobile page has recordings/transcripts of Mardi Gras Songs from Church Point, Basile, Soileau, and Tee-Mamou.

Another mobile web page provides an index to Flickr pages of photos of Cajun, Creole, and Zydeco musicians. Or go to desktop indexes.
