You can cancel parades, but you can not stop Mardi Gras.
Mardi Gras might look different this year than in years past, but Fat Tuesday is happening rain, snow or shine. Live from the Big Easy, Rio de Janeiro and here in Summit County, Colorado. Mardi Gras 2021 is February 16.
The Town of Breckenridge and Keystone Resort in compliance with social distancing have cancelled 2021 festivities, but that will not stop skiing Cajun’s from descending upon Summit County. I know this because I am one.
I grew up in New Orleans. My daddy decided one year he was sick of the parade crowds and booked a trip to Copper Mountain. GAME ON. Thank you Daddy for introducing the family to the greatest sport known to mankind: SNOW SKIING!!! I have been proud to call Colorado my home since 2000.
Wanna feel more Cajun on Fat Tuesday?
Dress Festive! Wear Beads! Wear the official colors of Mardi Gras: GREEN, PURPLE, GOLD.
We Cajuns love to dress up. We may not be the best skiers but we sure have fun and look good doing it. Hit Slopes on Fat Tuesday wearing purple, green and gold. And, don’t forget your beads! Try on some Cajun talk. Throw out your best WHO DAT or Boudreau and Thibodaux joke, or a simple Y’ALL.
Get into the Mardi Gras spirit with classic Boudreau and Thibodaux puns & don’t forget the accent. https://www.cajuneasy.com/jokes.html

Have a crepe in Breckenridge. C’est magnifique !
No need to limit yourself to beignets in the tiny snow-globe of the town of Breckenridge. There is an authentic French bakery on Main Street. Take a stroll down Main Street Breckenridge. There are dozens of boutiques and shop on Main Street. Grab lunch at La Francaise serving quiche, crepes and my favorite ham & brie croissant.

Laissez les bons temps rouler!
No matter where you find yourself on Tuesday, February 16 enjoy the day. As they say in the Big Easy, Let the Good times roll.
