Mardi GrasMardi Gras, or "Fat Tuesday," occurs on the last day of Carnival, the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. Though Mardi Gras day is the ultimate party day, the weeks leading up to New Orleans Mardi Gras provide many chances to see a parade or marching band. Though Bourbon Street feels like the epicenter of Mardi Gras, locals know there are many places to join the celebration, follow your favorite Mardi Gras Krewe, win beads during a parade, or dance in the streets.
