"Any Ya'll Coming Down To Nawlins For Mardi Gras?"


  

          

This is my 1st time ever experiencing Mardi Gras and I've had countless opportunities to go

And initially I wasn't looking forward to it just because I'm not into large crowds like that

But being down here you can't help but get caught up in all the excitement

It is CRAZY in the city right now!!! This is the 1st time Mardi Gras will be in February instead of March as it usually is

What I'm looking forward to, though, is the Zulu Ball which is the oldest black organization here in New Orleans and amongst Negroes it's something they look forward to just as much as Mardi Gras. The women are looking unbelievable good for these events as everybody is getting all done up.

So are any of you all coming down?

I hate we let our sister city hijack our tradition on a national scale. Alabama stays hustling backwards

began in Mobile, AL of all places...

I'd really like to know the history of it and how it's now become a New Orleans tradition

New Orleans does seem more fitting for this type of event

In response to Reply # 16


  

          

Mainly because it's not like it's a decade before it's in March. It usually happens every three or four years. And last year was a March year.

I mean....nobody where I'm at has even mentioned that. That's why it was an odd thing to see mentioned to me.
