路易斯安那州(Louisiana

說到路易斯安那州就不能不提到每年在此舉辦的嘉年華盛會:「懺悔星期二」。當法國人首次將此傳統傳入路易斯安那州時,只是在天主教大齋期前的一個微型嘉年華,然而隨著時代的更迭,如今每年在紐奧良「懺悔星期二」都以極盡奢華與鋪張的排場揭開序幕,往往伴隨著遊行、音樂會、大型派對、街頭舞蹈表演和變裝秀。然而,儘管此舉世聞名的年度盛會是以紐奧良所辦的最廣為人知,但其實在路易斯安那的其他市鎮,也都會舉辦各具地方特色的「懺悔星期二」慶典。可謂是全州動員的大盛事。

不過除了熱鬧的嘉年華活動,路易斯安那也是極具多元文化及歷史古蹟的一州。因其特殊的殖民歷史,路易斯安那是美國境內主要的法語區之一。
在路易斯安那除了法國移民的後裔外,克里奧爾卡郡人也居住在此地,共同為路易斯安那注入更多元的文化。而這些獨具特色的多元族群風情也展現在美食的發展上,倘若你來到路易斯安那州,千萬不要錯過這難得一見的文化饗宴!

Louisiana is located in the southern America. It is famous for its annual festival, Mardi Gras. The celebration of Mardi Gras symbolizes the spirit of Louisiana. When the French first introduced Mardi Gras to Louisiana, it was only a simple carnival event which was celebrated just before the beginning of Lent. But New Orleans transformed the simple celebration into an extravagant festival, with parades, music, parties, street dances, and costumes. Though Mardi Gras is best known in New Orleans, the truth is that other towns and cities throughout the state host their own Mardi Gras celebrations. The excitement of the event is contagious all over the state.

Mardi Gras is not the only worthwhile experience within the state. With the rich heritage of Creole, Cajun, and French cultures, Louisiana life is spiced up with foods like gumbo, andouille, etouffees, sauce piquantes, cayenne pepper, Tabasco, and crawfish. Louisiana is also one of the main regions in the United States where French is widely spoken.
