and Salutations from your humble Professor!
to your online resource for all things Mardi Gras in New Orleans. For over 3 centuries, Nouvellé Orleàns has celebrated
Carnival in her own inimitable way, beguiling people the across the globe
with the pageantry, mystery, and merriment that permeates the very soul
of the city. The celebrations fills the streets with revelers finding
adventure behind their masques and happiness 'round ev'ry confetti-littered
corner. There are no strangers at Mardi Gras, only friends and fellows
making their final pilgrimage to The City That Care Forgot before
the Lenten season returns, and brings our revels to an end for another
year. Truly a magical time in this, the most magical of cities.

You may wish to visit the Rotogravure and view images of Mardi Gras' past,
or peruse the many Carnival krewes. Like Mardi Gras itself, the
possibilities are endless.
Have a wonderful time, and as they
Laissez les bon ton rouler: Let the good times roll!
