There are three Super Sunday Mardi Gras celebrations that happen each year-- Uptown, Downtown, and Westbank. Super Sunday is an annual gathering of Mardi Gras Indian Tribes celebrating their heritage and culture in a magnificent display of hand-sewn suits, singing, dancing and chanting. The Indians congregate on picturesque Bayou St. John before the start of the parade and suits are displayed for photos and up close viewing. This is a good time to learn more about the culture and politely take photos.
