We are considering going to NOLA for a long weekend January 17 - 21 and I noticed the weekend we are going has these two parades.
What are these like are they worth seeing, any tips where to watch them from?
I have always wnated to see a Mardi Gras parade, but something always seems to get in the way. We are used to crowds and pretty open minded but craziness of the actually week leading up to actual Mardi Gras day may be a bit much. So I thought maybe going early in carnival season would be fun.
