54 Notes

It’s that time of year again in New Orleans: Carnival Time! With over 50 parades in the metro area between now and Mardi Gras Day – Tuesday, March 4, 2014 – there are so many different krewes, each with its own unique vibe and traditions. From the elegant and traditional old-line parades to the absolute wild and wacky, this is by no means a comprehensive list, but some of our favorite krewes in six distinct categories. Keep in mind many krewes intersect with one or more other categories as well. Without further ado: your 2014 Mardi Gras Parade Guide, by krewe.
