At Mardi Gras in New Orleans, you can watch a parade – or be in one.
Here’s some video from Frenchman Street, a cool spot far from the tourist zone, with lots of great live music clubs (the Spotted Cat, DBA, Snug Harbor etc.)
The first video is from Lundi Gras night. I have no idea who these folks are, but I love them! They were out Mardi Gras night too providing the tunes for a non-stop dance party.
Next: I found this on YouTube. It was shot on Mardi Gras Day itself. Glad to see it. I was over on Canal watching the Zulu Parade. (Can’t be in two places at once, but I know where I’ll be next year!)
