(WKRG) - Alabama is stepping up its marketing efforts when it comes to letting folks know where Mardi Gras actually got its start.
There are ten billboards displayed along the I-10 corridor with signs in Mississippi and Louisiana. Brittany Callahan spotted a billboard near Slidell that read "you are 114 miles from America's original Mardi Gras." Each sign changes its mileage on the signs depending on its relative distance to Mobile.
