It’s one thing to go to and see Mardi Gras as a spectator, but quite another to put on Mardi Gras as a krewe member, float designer, business owner, marching band member or any other invested person in the community. The behind the scenes creators of Mardi Gras in New Orleans as well as the locals celebrating on the parade route take the extravagance of Carnival very seriously. Find out what goes into Mardi Gras in New Orleans in this episode of GoNOLA Radio.
Special guest and GoNOLA TV host Lauren “Fleurty Girl” Thom joins our hosts Mikko and George Ingmire to talk about the New Orleans institution and provide a glimpse into the local experience. If you’re a Mardi Gras first timer this year or are just learning about it, consider yourself a little wiser to this grand tradition full of history, culture, color, sound and joy after hearing this episode.
