NEW ORLEANS MARDI GRAS
New Orleans….the mere mention of the name conjures up pictures of floats, maskers, beads, doubloons and the pure joy of Mardi Gras. From the family atmosphere of St. Charles and Napoleon Avenues, to the party feel of the downtown and French Quarter areas, there is a place to parade watch for everyone of every age and size. The celebration that is Mardi Gras is deeply rooted in the French tradition of New Orleans. Begun as a "New World" carryover from the pre-Lenten Parisian Mardi Gras, the New Orleans festivities evolved from private balls to foot parades to float parades (started in the mid 1800s) to the extravaganzas of today. The organizations that provide the Mardi Gras parades and balls are called "krewes". All do so at their own expense, thus providing what has many times been called the "Greatest Free Show on Earth". The Mardi Gras celebration begins on January 6 (Feast of the Epiphany also known as Kings Day) and continues through Mardi Gras Day (the day before Ash Wednesday). The traditional "king cake" is associated with and eaten during the entire Mardi Gras season. Also during this time, most carnival krewes have their balls or supper dances. Formal parades in New Orleans and the surrounding parishes begin about two weeks before Mardi Gras Day. The festivities reach a crescendo on the weekend before Mardi Gras Day and that level continues through Fat Tuesday. Houses, lampposts, people, and even horses are dressed in the colors ofMardi Gras-purple, green and gold. New Orleans for a brief time each year is transformed into a place where the everyday world is cast aside. Beads, doubloons, cups, and numerous other krewe throws are tossed to thousands of happy parade goers shouting,
"Throw me something, mister. "
Laissez les bon temps rouler.

THE NEW ORLEANS JAZZ & HERITAGE FESTIVAL
The Jazz & Heritage Festival has been a growing event each year. Setting record crowds the past few years. This two weekend festival has drawn the likes of many top entertainers, such as Paul Simon,Santana, B.B. King, and many more. This event always seems to out do itself every year. The festival always falls on the last weekend in April and the first weekend in May. It may be springtime, but do not count on all to comfortable temperatures. While average highs are only in the lower 80's, the combination between the large crowds and the lack of shade make for a surprisingly hot time. Another great thing about this festival is it gives you an opportuinity to sample just about every local cuisine you can think of. (Tip: Get your Crawfish Bread & Crawfish Monica early in the day. You don't want to waste time standing in line for these great items, when you could be out dancing to great artist). Remember to bring comfortable clothes and shoes and sunscreen and hat to enjoy the festival to its fullest.
Happy Jazz Fest!!!!
