Purple, green and gold Mardi Gras essentials

Posted: Updated:

The Mardi Gras store in Port Arthur has been the festival's headquarters for the past 20 years.

And as the hub of all things purple, green and gold the Mardi Gras store is known as one of the perfect places for the right supplies to "fit in" at Mardi Gras.

You can find flags to display in front of your home, of course they have a huge selection of beautiful beads and they've got jester collars and cumber buns decked out in rhinestones with hats to match.

But for Krewe members riding in the parades their costumes will correlate with this year's theme "Love and Legends" instead of the traditional color scheme.
