About Lundi Gras

In 1986, Riverwalk Marketplace opened its doors along the Mississippi River. New Orleans Magazine's Errol Laborde observed that the Monday prior to Fat Tuesday lacked Carnival revelry for both locals and tourists. Riverwalk Marketplace and Laborde partnered to restore the longtime tradition of welcoming Rex to the Canal Street Wharf that dates back to as early as 1915 by creating a daytime festival with music, fireworks and the official arrival of Rex, King of Carnival, to Mardi Gras on Riverwalk's Spanish Plaza. In its 26th year, Lundi Gras, annually on the Monday before Mardi Gras Day, has become an integral part of the internationally beloved New Orleans Mardi Gras experience.
