27 Notes

New Orleans has a language all its own and Mardi Gras is certainly no different. And because in every Mardi Gras crowd, there are plenty of first timers, we’ve cobbled together a bit of a Mardi Gras glossary of terms and traditions. If this is your first rodeo, feel free to use this guide to fit right in. If you’re a tried and true veteran, pass this guide off to your first-timer friends and be sure they wise up before heading out to the parades.
