Mardi Gras was a very special celebration which took place in March. During the event, pirates celebrated Mardi Gras by donning brightly colored outfits. When night fell, the skies erupted in color as the fireworks of Mardi Gras appeared on the coasts of Port Royal, Tortuga and Padres Del Fuego illuminating the brightly colored outfits that the pirates wore during this time.
Additionally, the bonfire and roast pork tonic would appear on the shores of Tortuga. One piece of pork could restore the user's full health! Each visit to a fire pit granted the pirate 5 pieces of delicious pork at a time! In order to get more, you had to have less than 5 pieces of roast pork.
In addition to the wonderful festivities, there was also a colorful Peddler Set that was sold during this time period to get your groove on. The Mardi Gras outfit had been noted to be one of the most colorful, cool, and most brilliant peddler outfit within the game. This was the only time when the peddler set was available. It was only available from February 9th - 13th each year.
Traditions of Mardi Gras
The Mardi Gras (also called Fat Tuesday, and Carnaval in Brazil) refers to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season, which begins on Ash Wednesday. Historically, the tradition can be traced back to the 17th Century.
Popular practices include wearing masks and costumes, overturning social conventions, dancing, sports competitions, parades, etc.* Costumes, food, and parade floats often feature three primary colors. The color of purple represents justice, the color of green represents faith, and the color of gold represents power.
