Flickr Pick of the Week: Mardi Gras

After Super Bowl 47 comes to a close in New Orleans, Mardi Gras will just be gearing up for a full week of parades, parties and revelry.

As the Super Bowl winds down, Mardi Gras will be winding right back up without missing a beat! When people say this city knows how to party, they’re not exaggerating! If this is your first rodeo (well, even if it isn’t) we have some great posts from locals about how to celebrate Mardi Gras. First things first, you need to check out the Mardi Gras Day Survival Guide to cover the basics. Then, you need to find a costume! Next, you want take a look at the parade schedule and if you get a bit overwhelmed, don’t worry! We have narrowed down the best five parades to make things a bit easier. If you’ve been around the Mardi Gras block a time or two, why don’t you try doing it like a local. You’ll be glad you did and as always, “Laissez les bons temps rouler!”
