The Mardi Gras Experience

As Carnival Season gradually comes to a close… as we take that last bite of King Cake, sweep the beads off the front porch, and watch the street washers come and go… we all reflect on what a great time we had this year. At this time I remember how lucky I am to live in such a fun and festive city. My experience this year has been full of great music, food, parades, parties, and people. So til next year… Happy Mardi Gras!

  1. This is off the hook ridiculous!!! We’re going to be in NOLA Feb. 13-18 and would love to see a parade or two. I know the season starts on the 15th…I’m a parade noob so how about some pointers or customs to go along with the photos? We’re planning on bringing our kids, 13 and 15 out too. Is that OK?

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog! Most of the parades are definitely family friendly. I’ve been going since I was a little kid. There are a couple of small parades the weekend you’ll be here that are NOT family friendly but its fun for adults if you’re ok with a little crass humor.

    If you get a chance to come down the weekend before Mardi Gras, that’s the best time for everyone. There’s a lot more photo galleries of parades on my blog if you wanna check em out!
