Mardi Gras is right around the corner and if you have never been to Mardi Gras in New Orleans this might be the year to make the trip.

I love Mardi Gras, it is my absolute favorite holiday and no other city creates the Mardi Gras magic as New Orleans does. So if this is the year you want to drive the 2.5 hours and take it all in then here is this year's parade schedule.
