Mardi Gras
Starts and Finishes at the Louisiana Superdome
1500 Poydras Street
New Orleans Louisiana 70130

Mardi Gras has been around for a very long time and has a fantastic and colorful history. You will be part of one of the largest parties on the planet. Each year hundreds of thousands of people flock to New Orleans to take part in this carnival.

If you like to party then New Orleans is the place to be. Starting on the 6th of January you will be able to walk from hot spot to hot spot as the city turns the taps on and keep it pouring until Midnight the day before Ash Wednesday.

Mardi Gras is not just about drinking and parties. It has world class food to offer as well. You will be able to try all kinds of dishes like alligator, crawfish, and jumbo shrimp.

Don't forget to do some shopping and find that special souvenir to take home. And most of all take your camera so you can capture this incredible festival to show your friends and family long after the Mardi Gras is over.

So plan to visit New Orleans each year on Kings' Day or Twelfth Night, Jan. 6. So you can be part of this once a year celebration.
