Mardi Gras

Join the largest party in the South

French for 'fat Tuesday', Mardi Gras is the final day of the Carnival season and is characterised by music, parades and a celebratory holiday atmosphere.

The dynamic city of New Orleans closes roads down throughout the entire city centre in order to allow party-goers to flood the streets.

Revellers dress in brilliant costumes, throw beads from balconies and dance to pulsating music from the parading floats. Be seduced and enchanted by the vibrant colours, spectacular sounds and completely addictive atmosphere at this outlandish festival.
