The holiday of Mardi Gras is celebrated in all of Louisiana, including the city of New Orleans. Celebrations are concentrated for about two weeks before and through Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday (the start of lent in the Western Christian tradition). Usually there is one major parade each day (weather permitting); many days have several large parades. The largest and most elaborate parades take place the last five days of the Mardi Gras season. In the final week, many events occur throughout New Orleans and surrounding communities, including parades and balls (some of them masquerade balls).

Has anyone gone to Mardi Gras in New Orleans?

If so, what was it like?

If not, would you like to go?

I've never been and have no desire to go. To busy for me. I don't like crowds. Seem it's just one great big party and I'm not a party girl.

I've never been, but my family once stayed at the Disney Port Orleans in Orlando. That was better I'm sure haha.
