When I first came to New  Orleans I thought Mardi Gras was one big parade, only to learn it is two weeks or more of parades all over the city.  It is wild and wonderful. The beads are bigger and better than anywhere, and they throw more. They even throw whole bags of unopened packages of beads!  People are free here to express themselves however they want and the do!  Drinking is a big part of the fun, and everyone is walking up and down the streets with a drink or offering someone else one. Of course in New Orleans Mardi Gras is just one parade among many...from the Irish Day parade to the Irish Italian Parade and more and more.  If there is an excuse to party New Orleans can find a way!
