Everyone thinks of Mardi Gras as a big party on Bourbon Street but it's more that that. The real Mardi Gras is a family friendly affair that the whole city enjoys. The parades are beautiful, spectacular affairs of light and colour. The beads flow freely from all floats and if you are lucky, you may just catch a coconut at the Zulu parade.
There is, of course, the big party on Bourbon with all the bawdy delights, or opt for a more locally flavored celebration on Frenchmen Street and wander from club to club with local revelers, All in all, Mardi Gras is what you make it!
