Mardi Gras is an endurance sport. There is a lot of walking, a lot of dancing, and a lot of standing on your feet. With that in mind…

Don’t: Use Mardi Gras as a time to show off your high fashion clothing or high heel shoes.

Do: Wear clothes that you are comfortable in and don’t mind getting a little dirty. Count on spills, mud, and rain. Make sure you have a few pockets and don’t bring any accessories you can’t afford to lose. Make sure you bring shoes that you won’t mind walking a few miles in, as walking is the preferred Mardi Gras method of transportation.
