In this episode, I talk with Arthur Hardy, founder and publisher of Arthur Hardy's annual Mardi Gras Guide. His guide is THE resource for Mardi Gras in New Orleans. It contains everything you need to help you enjoy the Carnival season, including parade maps, history, insider tips and more.
Listen in as we discuss the history of Carnival and how to get the most out of your experience.
Do you know when float riders started tossing beads and trinkets to the crowd? How does someone get to be king or queen of Carnival? Can I participate in Mardi Gras? By the end of the discussion you'll have the answers to these questions and more!
