The Coastal Mississippi Mardi Gras Museum holding Mardi Gras Experience Film Premiere
Tomorrow the Coastal Mississippi Mardi Gras Museum will premiere its new film ‘The Mardi Gras Experience.’
Experts in the film discussed the origins of Mardi Gras, history of Mardi Gras in Mississippi, the formation of the Gulf Coast Carnival Association, costume design, royalty, krewes, float making, parades, music, and Mardi Grad foods and King Cakes.
The film was produced by John Lestrade of ‘Take Two Video Productions’ in partnership with Stevens Media Production.
This project is made possible by a grant from the Mississippi Coast National Heritage area. Coastal Mississippi Mardi Gras Museum Executive Director Anna Harris said, “It’s a really great film that covers the different aspects of Mardi Gras history. It’s wonderful for our locals to come out, even the locals will learn something they didn’t know, which is really exciting. Of course, the visitors, it really gives them a chance to understand this unique part of our culture in South Mississippi.”
The film will premiere at a showing party tomorrow from 5 p.m. to 7:30 at the Coastal Mississippi Mardi Gras Museum.
