LAFCAA Celebrates Mardi Gras with Big Sale and Party

Louisiana’s 1st Choice Auto Auction recently celebrated Mardi Gras with its annual Rockin’ Mardi Gras event.  The sale was a huge success with over 500 units sold.  New records were set for the highest in-person and online attendance, and most online bids.

The auction was also happy to host renowned TikTok chef Stalekracker.  Customers enjoyed being able to take pictures and purchase some seasoning while being surrounded with authentic king cake to get into the Mardi Gras Spirit.  LAFCAA had the pleasure of hosting Auction Academy Class 7, which was on hand to witness the sale and all the exciting events

Following the sale, the celebration continued down in New Orleans where Louisiana’s 1st Choice hosted its Rockin’ Mardi Gras party at the House of Blues.
