It’s that time of year again, for a night filled with drinks, laughter, dancing and debauchery. 

You’ve guessed it: MARDI GRAS 2022, in Boise. 


A Little History

Mardi Gras, which is French for Fat Tuesday, dates back to medieval Europe.

It is a Christian holiday, known as the final day before Lent (also known as Ash Wednesday). This is why people indulge in food and drink on Tuesday, because once Wednesday starts, they are required to abstain for religious purposes. 

Over the years, this holiday has become infamous for its big parades, wild celebrations and delicious foods. 


What Does This Mean For Boise?
