Happy Fat Tuesday! Fun facts about Mardi Gras:

- The first official Mardi Gras parade held in New Orleans was in 1837. Floats began appearing in 1857.
- The three official Mardi Gras colors have meaning. Purple = justice, green = faith, a...nd gold = power.
- In several other countries (including England, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada) today's better known as "Pancake Day." (Yum!)
- Why "Fat" Tuesday? Some think it refers to the extravagant over-indulgences of the holiday. Others relate it back to a fattened ox that was paraded through town before being sacrificed at a mid-winter, pagan fertility celebration.

However you choose to celebrate, have a great day!  Don't forget to come and see us this weekend at the Santos MTB Expo March 7-9!
