* Wondering why the dates for Mardi Gras Race Week bounce around? Well, the Mardi Gras Regatta is set to coincide with Mardi Gras which is the last day before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. And Lent always starts 46 days before Easter and Fat Tuesday is always the day before Ash Wednesday. Easter can fall on any Sunday from March 23 to April 25 with the exact date to coincide with the first Sunday after the full moon following a Spring Equinox!

So there you have it.
