Mardi Gras: A World Away
Mardi Gras season is here and the parades are about to roll! If you didn’t make it this year, put in on your calendar to reserve your spot early for the best show on earth. We’ll be watching the parades from our doorstep and balcony at the Grand Victorian and some of the best sights are of the parade floats themselves.
Made locally here in New Orleans, you can take a behind the scenes tour at Mardi Gras World and view the artists at work making these beautiful floats year round.
Here are photos Innkeeper Bonnie Rabe took on a recent visit to Mardi Gras World for a first hand look at what you’ll find at one of our top recommended, unique and naturally New Orleans local tours.
Get your crocodile smile on at Mardi Gras World; we’ll be posting more from the floats along the route. Look forward to seeing you here soon!
