You’ve heard of Mardi Gras, but in the town of Worden they celebrate Wordi Gras, the village’s version of New Orleans’ event of excess.
Coined a “Redneck Mardi Gras,” the event tells you all you need to know about a town that has fun and doesn’t take itself too seriously. The rest of the year, Worden is home to small businesses, a great pumpkin patch, and corn maze.
