Mardi Gras 2020????

So I thought I'd put this out there to see if we have anybody interested in helping to Organise an Annual Mardi Gras Rally event. I live an Hour and a half from New Orleans, I have 8 Acres for free dry camping, there are a few free/ cheap campgrounds close by, and there's always something to do down here on the Mississippi Gulf coast. Casino's, Beaches, Great Food, plenty of roads (paved and Dirt) and during Mardi Gras time there are Tons of Parades.

This would give some a chance to check off a few more states from their bucket list, and some a chance to thaw out from the cold of the frozen North.

So official Mardi Gras is Fat Tuesday Feb 25 2020 but the festivities start as early as the end of January so there is a 1 month widow to plan. here is a few links to ponder the possibilities:

https://www.gulfcoast.org/things-to-do/

Just a thought......

I have been to a number of Mardi Gras, as my sister lives just outside of N.O. in Metarie. Mardi Gras in the French Quarter is not for the faint of heart.

I would attend as long as I can rent a motorcycle (not a Harley) somewhere near New Orleans.

Sounds like a lot of fun, but I will be tied up with snow plowing.

I just came back from New Orleans. The big events last week end were a Southern Baptist Convention and the Southern Decadence event. Hilarious! Apparently the Baptist didn't check to see what else was going on during that week end.

Bourbon street was dominated by the southern decadence folks having a real good time.

I went back to the hotel early. Marti Gras might be better.

Or maybe they did, and knew exactly what they were doing.

Baptists can be party animals.
