Cajun Mardi Gras

Cajun Mardi Gras

Trailer - Dance for a Chicken - the Cajun Mardi Gras.

Every year before Lent begins, processions of masked and costumed revelers, often on horseback, go from house to house gathering ingredients for communal gumbos in communities across rural southwest Louisiana. The often-unruly participants in this ancient tradition play as beggars, fools, and thieves as they raid farmsteads and perform in exchange for charity or, in other words, "dance for a chicken."
