ST. ALBANS (Kera Mashek) -- The Mardi Gras season is officially underway, and St. Mark's Episcopal Church in St. Albans was letting the good times roll on Saturday.

The sixth annual Mardi Gras event was held at the church, featuring cajun dishes and New Orleans-style jazz music, along with arts and crafts, books, jewelry and a parade.

While Mardi Gras feasts like this are happening across the country, the big day for the purple, gold and green is next week on Fat Tuesday.
