The Mardi Gras festival is a religious observance in France, Mexico and New Orleans. People attend parades, parties and other events to celebrate the day of the death of St. Patrick. During this three day long festival, people dress in colorful clothes, carry claret or green drinks, eat traditional food such as pot-roasted chicken, suck on jalapeno peppers and drink black coffee. The celebration ends with a grand parade down the streets of New Orleans.
