The deep-rooted traditions in this traditional Cajun enclave take a festive turn during Mardi Gras season. The events here—including parades, barbecues and crawfish boils put on by 20 local krewes—are smaller and more intimate than those in Louisiana’s cities, but they showcase the state’s vibrant cultural mix and warm sense of welcome. The celebration kicks off with the Krewe of Apollo’s Carnival Ball on Feb. 8.
