    Parade & Concerts should be a bit earlier! would be nice to see a Salsa artist like Victor Manuel, Luis Enrique o Jerry Rivera!

      why would you want Salsa at a Mardi Gras? They have nothing to do with NOLA!!

    I absolutely LOVE Mardi Gras!
    One year, my daughter was catching a ton of beads and a child in a wheelchair was watching the beads pass by her. My daughter turned to her and handed her a full hand of beads telling the little girl she caught them for her. Such a memory!

    We’re all really upset it’s not on late march early April ?

    now the parade is every night, i just wish they’d choose some days to only have the concert and not the parade. Especially since last year was a ruckus when you had Fall Out Boy, which was only compromised because the parade people weren’t ready for the concert crowd. If some nights only had one, it would help out tremendously and keep Universal being able to bring in such great acts.

    Mardi Gras needs to go another week as the schools up north are not on Spring Break until 3/27 – 3/31

    If the Strawberry Festival can get Donnie & Marie last year, why can’t Mardi Gras? Also, how about Earth, Wind & Fire?

  14. Dawn Myhill

    NO way! Been for the last three years to Mardi Gras at the end of March. Booked our trip for March April 2017 for Mardi Gras now we will get there the week after it finishes! How come it is so early?????
