St. Joseph's Night
St. Joseph's Night is traditionally the night that Mardi Gras Indians parade through their respective neighborhoods, dancing and chanting in the darkness in search of rival Indian gangs, showcasing their elaborate costumes and intricate beadwork to local residents and neighbors.
Mardi Gras Indians Super Sundays
There are three separate Super Sunday celebrations each year after St. Joseph's Night on March 19th: Uptown Super Sunday, organized by the Indian Council; Downtown Indian Sunday, sponsored by Tambourine and Fan; and Westbank Super Sunday, put on by the Mohawk Hunters. Mardi Gras Indians from different areas of the city gather for parades, second lines, and to show off the artistry of their costumes and beadwork. Accompanying the parades are musical acts, food, activities for kids, and more!
