WHY NEW ORLEANS MATTERS

New Orleans Carnival Calendar & Mardi Gras in New Orleans  

All aspects of society partake in celebration from Twelfth Night to Ash Wednesday.  We’ll take a closer look at the Carnival Calendar and all the unique events that happen every year in New Orleans.  Black men in blackface, others dressed as glamourized Plains Indians, hipsters in marching bands, society debutantes and formalized traditions, grade school kids and home-made floats and parades are just some of the aspects of what makes this calendar season unique.  Origin, traditions, parades, music, balls, school events, "what the locals do," how the entire season transpires, etc. – Linda Santi will cover all the above and more in this offering that comes as close to taking you to Mardi Gras as you can get without traveling!
