The world famous Mardi Gras is the biggest celebration the city of New Orleans holds every year.
This magnificent, costumed, beaded and feathered party is laced with tradition and is all about having a good time!
As Louisiana counts down to Fat Tuesday, communities throughout the state ready their costumes, floats and parade trinkets for several days of festivities.
New Orleans itself is one of the cities in the world that everyone should try and visit at least once - but if you manage to make that visit for Mardi Gras you will have an experience that you will remember for ever!
If you can't be In New Orleans for Mardi Gras itself check out the parade dates in the lead up and you will still witness a party that most cities would envy.
