New Orleans is just one of those towns unique unto itself. Spending a week in a timeshare during Carnaval season sounds like just long enough to party and take in all the good restaurants and Mardi Gras traditions. He says it so well, here is an invitation from the Mayor:
A special invitation from |
The Honorable Mayor Ray Nagin
As Mayor of the great City of New Orleans, I invite you to visit our city to experience the excitement of Mardi Gras!
The carnival season officially begins each year on January 6, the Feast of the Epiphany, --- 'King's Day' -- with traditional balls occurring in the weeks that lead up to the big event.
Spectacular parades with beautiful and creative floats begin parading two weekends prior to Mardi Gras Day. Our private carnival clubs, called krewes, take on royalty status and throw beads, doubloons and toys to all of our parade goers. Visitors quickly learn to say "Throw Me Something Mister!"
The culmination of Mardi Gras in New Orleans begins early on Mardi Gras Day with the Krewes of Zulu and Rex parading through the city. Music, food and elaborate costumes contribute to a fun-filled day of excitement for revelers of all ages.
While the excitement of New Orleans with its music, food and culture is year-round, we invite everyone to experience Mardi Gras at least once in their lifetime. Make your plans now to be a part of this great tradition and see firsthand why we say "Laissez les bon temps rouler!"
C. Ray Nagin
Mayor of New Orleans
