I have never been to a Mardis Gras celebration. And I don’t really know what those celebrations are like. But here are some suggestions in case you want to go.
The first thing you will want to do is to plan ahead. You will want to make sure that you have your hotel reservations. If you are wanting to try to go this year, Mardis Gras is going to be on February ninth, you will have to start working on your hotel right away. You will also want to figure out what you want to do about transportation. Most of the celebration will take place in the French Quarter, and only those with special passes will be able to get past the police barricades. These are just some things that you will want to keep in mind.
You will also want to think about what you want to wear. People usually wear costumes to this evening. And different colors have meanings. Gold means power. Green means faith. And purple means justice.. You will want to take a bag for you will be getting. But it is seriously frowned on to pick up beads once they hit the ground.. I would love to know your thoughts on this.
