What do Fat Tuesday, Fasching and Mardi Gras have in common? They are the same food and fun festival celebrated throughout the great state of Louisiana. But the Pelican state is famous for much more than this one day of the year. In this two-part Trip Talk segment, Ray Scriber of the Louisiana department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism will open your eyes to the wonderful celebrations of Main Street Louisiana from the Cajun Bayous of the Mississippi Delta to the German settlements of northeast Louisiana. It’s a trip you won’t want to miss.
