Mardi Gras – Carnival in New Orleans

Famous Mardi Gras.. the big yearly carnival in New Orleans on Fat Tuesday. Something between Brazilian Carnival in Rio, a military parade, a hip hop and jazz concert as well as a huge barbecue party. Again all in the typical colors of Purple, Green and Gold.

We enjoyed just one great party on Lundi and Mardi Gras… some pictures for you to enjoy too 🙂

  1. Wow! That looks amazing! Makes Fasnacht look pretty boring 😉
    Beautiful costumes and wagons.
    Once again awesome pics guys!


  2. Again, fantastic photos, both during the day and in the evening. Your masks & colors are also in the stimmung of NOLA !! I agree, Fasnacht is nothing in comparison to Mardi Gras in both NOLA & in Rio ! Besides, I lost a lot of good ties in Duesseldorf und Koeln, during that time !.
