If you're lucky enough to be in New Orleans this Carnival season, I'm sure you've see some of the amazing Mardi Gras parades. Krewes, which are local social groups, put together floats and incredible costumes and and toss lots of fun things like beads and toys, known as throws, to the screaming crowds.
Since it's sometimes difficult, especially to Mardi Gras newcomers, to know when and where the parades start, this post will cover the schedules from Friday, February 21, 2014 through Fat Tuesday.
Click here for the Parade Schedules. Have fun! Will be posting more on the types of throws.
Feel feel to leave comments below, especially if you have parade stories to tell, hee hee!
