mardi gras

mardi gras

Today sees the Mardi Gras celebration in New Orleans to coincide with Fat Tuesday and it sees the Indian tribes group together in suits they have spent a whole year designing and creating. If you miss the Indian showing at the Mardi Gras you can still see them later when the Mardi Gras Indian Orchestra plays the Hi-Ho Lounge.

Out-of towners can enjoy the Rex and Zulu parades by renting stands along the route, and within the bounds of the French Quarter there are bands of revelers on foot. The Krewe of St. Anne marches from the Marigny down Royal Street. It disbands by afternoon, but there's still a magic to the day that can be best sustained by avoiding Bourbon Street. For breaks in the French Quarter, Café Envie, Cafe Beignet and CC's Community Coffeehouse have iced coffee, hot tea and pastries (Carnival carbs).

So plenty to enjoy at the event which will see many visitors and performers in the event which lasts for a while.
