Forum members have asked what happens during the long Mardi Gras season, which begins on January 6 and runs through Mardi Gras Day, which this year is tomorrow. Here is a list of the parades in the metropolitan area of New Orleans. To most parades, add a brunch or banquet and a formal ball or King & Queen’s party. (Last night was the Endymion Ball, with music by Diana Ross)
Today, called Lundi Gras, features parades tonight but also all day entertainment by the river.
