Mardi Gras in New Orleans!

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

What a Mardi Gras season it was this year. The weather was perfect, the crowds were great, no serious crime problems. You can understand now why the New York Times named New Orleans as the number one “must see” destination in the world for 2018. The highlight for us was going to the Endymion Ball, and seeing Rod Stewart perform. Even an old guy like me was able to stay up in the  early morning hours. And then it all came to an end on Mardi Tuesday.  Fat Tuesday we call it.  Tuesday evening at the stroke of midnight. You can also see the mess that had to be cleaned up below. If you’ve never been to Mardi Gras, put on your list for 2019.
