In January we took a 3-day weekend to use up some travel vouchers before they expired thanks to the selfish Chinese leader 🙁 However, we did have a great time. While we had been there before and checked out Jackson Square in the French Quarter and Bourbon Street, there was still something we hadn’t done on those previous trips, see a float parade during Mardi Gras. As it turned out, we were there during what would have been the beginning of Carnival and Mardi Gras, but again the parades and such were canceled by the aforementioned pathetic Chinese leader. While we were disappointed, we decided to finally check out Mardi Gras World! This is where all the floats are designed and created. We had a blast, and it was a great substitution.
