When people think of Mardi Gras, New Orleans often comes to mind. However, there is much more to the religious holiday than the activities that take place in Louisiana. Recently, Hubbard High School’s French Club traveled to Tiffany's Banquet Center in Brookfield to learn about the historical relevance, celebrations and traditions of Mardi Gras. Students also examined preserved traditions of generations of French immigrants. Professional dancers from Fred Astaire Dance Studios taught students how to perform authentic dances and the chefs at the banquet center prepared a French Creole style meal.
