The series of events went from Thursday-Sunday, but I didn’t arrive until Saturday so, yeah, I can’t tell you about the huge Masquerade Ball Friday night (200+ people) because I wasn’t there.
My adventure started on Saturday where I wondered around New Orleans and saw various parades and boobies. Well, the boobies were rare and are the exception to the “Mardi Gras Beads” thing, not the rule. But still, boobies (5 total)!
On Sunday, I woke up early and traveled to the House of Blues where a huge-ass (200+ again) breakfast was taking place. We ate masses amount of food before marching down the streets of the French Quarter of New Orleans at 8am yelling and throwing beads at sleepy people and windows (open window = 10 points).
Once we marched back to the hotel, we got dressed in ridiculous costumes and prepared for the parade.
From there, we tossed beads at people for about 4 hours. I must have thrown well over 1,000 beads.
After the parade was over, I sat down for only a moment and then passed-out.
