Really the only thing I was trying to get across when I made this post was how absolutely insane and unusual it is for an area to have over 70 parades in just 2 weeks!! That's just nuts. I can't get over this place.

More info is found at mardigras.com (including the much interesting history and traditions of mardi gras.)

The week after Mardi Gras, New Orleans hosts the EPA conference. (At least I think it's always there; it might rotate to other cities, too.) I wonder if there's still a lot of cleanup going on when the environmentalists and bureaucrats converge on the city.
