Has anyone ever been to Mardi Gras?



Mardi Gras is on Feb. 24th, 2004. When does the partying start? Does it start the weekend before or just on that night? I am planning a trip there for Mardi Gras, but I want to know how the event usually starts and ends. Thanks!

It actually starts two weeks before, with parades going through different neighborhoods. the first week and a half are mostly for local people, though it's my favorite part, before the tourists all arrive. The weekend before Fat Tuesday is really crazy. But the whole city takes the week off, so you can't really arrive too early.

Have been but it was like in 2001. Would love to go back if I get the chance.

If I were you, I'd head down the week before. Gives you plenty of partying warm up time

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!
