Mobile is the home of Mardi Gras... and several years ago my husband Ray wrote a song about it. And I get to put in a shameless plug at this time every year. And no, he didn't pay me to do this. And no, we don't make any money from this... it's just fun!
And it's been quoted in articles about the origin of Mardi Gras on the Gulf Coast, too!
