New Orleans & Mardi Gras

Post by falvegas » Fri Feb 13, 2015 5:57 pm

Totally upset I couldn’t make New Orleans Mardi Gras this year.
Parades began February 6th. Most popular visit time is weekend before Mardi Gras (February 13- 17). Mardi Gras [Fat Tuesday] is the last Carnival Day, day before Ash Wednesday, first day of Lent. Most visitors will plan to arrive February 14 to enjoy an extended weekend of festivities.
