Cleaning Up after Mardi Gras!

Jim Brown Audio Player
Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

It was a heck of a Mardi Gras this year.  If you have never been “way down yonder in New Orleans,” you need to add it to your “must visit” destinations, especially for Mardi Gras.  Parades wind through the streets day after day.  The food choices are fantastic.  But it all has to come to an end as the Lenten Season commences.  Don’t worry about the city slowing down thought.  St. Patrick’s celebrations (New Orleans is a big Catholic city), Italian festivals in March and Jazz Fest, the biggest music gathering in the world, all on the agenda in the coming two months.  Twenty Five million pounds of beads were picked up after the various parades and celebrations.  Check out the lean up operations below.  Then at midnight on Fat Tuesday, the police clear Bourbon Street and announce that Mardi Gras is officially over.  I broadcast last week’s show right from the center of the French Quarter.  see you there next year.
