Mardi Gras in Downtown Mobile104 S Royal St.

The original Mardi Gras started in 1703 in Mobile when French settlers celebrated at Twenty-Seven Mile Bluff, the first settlement in the city. This celebration was small and unlike what people think of Mardi Gras today. However, in 1711 in Mobile, Mardi Gras included a parade – believed to be the first in North America – that featured a papier-mâché bull.
