Mardi Gras literally means ‘Fat Tuesday’ and is the last day of the Carnival season before the beginning of the Lenten season where we’re all supposed to fast and be good. Mardi Gras Day falls on a different day each year, however, it is always 46 days before Easter. This year, the Fat Tuesday festivities fall on February 21st.  All Spark Fireworks can help you put a little pop into your partying with a wide array of fireworks that help you recreate the best of the Big Easy right in your own backyard.
Fireworks in the official Mardi Gras colors are always a top pick during this season. The official colors are green, gold and purple. Chosen way back in 1872, these colors are steeped in history, tradition and symbolism.  Purple represents “Justice,” green represents “Faith,” and gold represents “Power.”
Fireworks created with some or all of these colors would make a bold statement lighting up the sky on Fat Tuesday. All Spark Fireworks has a wide range of fireworks to suit your level of merriment, from wild and raucous like a Mardi Gras parade to more glamorous and glitzy like one of the formal affair balls. Check out our firecrackers, fountains, spinners, smoke bombs, sparklers, artillery shells, Roman candles and “Laissez la bonne temps roulez!”
