New Orleans Carnival Season

The Carnival Season begins on 1/6/16 in New Orleans. This is the warm up for Mardi Gras’s Fat Tuesday which is 2/9/16 this year. I always thought Mardi Gras started mid January and went through mid February but it does not. Apparently, they start having parades and carnival style events beginning today. These go on through the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday which is February 9th this year. I have never been to Mardi Gras even though I lived in Louisiana for several years. I don’t really like big crowds. If you have pictures or a story you would like to share to start off the 2016 Carnival Season, this is the place.
