Carnival Links
Our Favorite Mardi Gras Links With all of the diversity of Mardi Gras, no website would be complete without the inclusion of links to the best Mardi Gras sites available out there on the Internet.

Your humble Professor follows these directives when selecting websites for inclusion on this page:

May Link to Adult Sights-Caution All parts of the site must be family friendly, and appropriate for all ages.  Should the sites listed link to inappropriate materials, the site listing will be marked with the icon at right.

The site must be of importance to Carnival either as an historical or educational site, a krewe site, a family activity site, or a site that provides wholesome family entertainements for Carnival.

Please do return and visit with the Compendium again soon.
