The Lead Bead: Mardi Gras, New Orleans

Though the celebration may be smaller in this post-Hurricane Katrina year, New Orleans is still the lead bead among all the Mardi Gras celebrations that go from now through Fat Tuesday on February 28. So come on down to NOLA for the best throws, colors, balls, beads, masks and king cakes.

Other cities that host Mardi Gras parties include:
Mobile, AL;
Galveston, TX;
Gasparilla, FL’s Pirate Festival; and
San Diego’s Brazil Carnival, CA.
