In the Cajun areas of Louisiana, Mardi Gras is a special celebration just like in New Orleans, but it has a completely different set of characteristics, way of costuming, and, of course, the Courir de Mardi Gras, a long walk through the woods chasing after ingredients (including a live chicken) in order to make a communal gumbo.
