Laissez les bons temps rouler! It’s Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Mardi gras, French for Fat Tuesday, refers to the ritual of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season, which begins on Ash Wednesday. Of course it has turned into a giant party in many cities around the world where it is also known as Carnival. We have been to New Orleans a few times but never during the Mardi Gras celebration. So we took a trip over to Mardi Gras World to check out where they design and build many of the krewe’s  floats.
