  1. Kudos to Mr. Mardi Gras not only for creating floats for so long but also for helping the people of his beloved city. I loved NOLA but wasn’t there during Mardi Gras. 🙁

    Whaaaaaaaaat??? 21 tonnes??? That’s insane!

    Thank you so much! New Orleans is somewhere that is an absolute must on my American Roadtrip, and the parade looks unmissable, but now so too does the pre-parade tour!

    I honestly had no idea that so much work and dedication goes into each parade… literally every day of the year! That’s crazy.

    Awesome article! 🙂

    I didn’t know that Mardi Gras World was the maker of floats for all the parade floats! It must be a very busy year for them and a lot of planning. I also didn’t know the majority of the floats were family friendly. That’s great to know.

      It was so interesting and I learned SOO much that day! They stay busy all year long. Such a fun place to visit!

  4. I love love love New Orleans! I have only been once and sadly not during Mardi Gras. Good excuse for a return visit I think as this looks all sorts of fabulous!

  5. So interesting and refreshing to know Mardi Gras can be family-friendly. We thought about going this last year, but didn’t feel like it was a place for kids, even if we skipped the “naughty parade”. Glad to see there are things for kids. Although, I think I would like touring this place even more than my daughter!

  6. I have always wanted to visit New Orleans just for being able to attend Mardi Gras. I see and hear so much about it and I would finally love to live it and take part one day!

    Geez Louise! 500 floats per year and they begin the day after the current festival? That is dedication! I have yet to visit New Orleans but dream of strolling down Bourbon Street!

    That’s so cool! I have heard it was kind of the “USA most famous carnival/celebration” but didn’t know it involved all this… the museum, its story, its social activity to the american community.
    That’s probably what I love the most about reading “learning-post” like yours, that turns to be more a teaching class than a subjective experience of your Mardi Gras weekend.
    Whenever I go there (and hopefully won’t take long) I’ll already have quite a big background about Mardi Gras and I hope it will help me understand everything better!

    Thanks for sharing and congrats!

      If you are there in December be sure to visit the Roosevelt hotel to check out their light display in the lobby. It is so pretty!
