WATCH: New Orleans' Mardi Gras Raucous Parades


By Neal Broverman

A live ParadeCam will take you right to St. Charles Street.

Mardi Gras Day happens in New Orleans on (Fat) Tuesday, March 4, but there are plenty of parades, floats, and marching bands to enjoy before then.

NOLA is gearing up for Mardi Gras Day, and the party began earlier this month when the first parade rolled down St. Charles Avenue. For the time being, take a look below at the parades via the Times-Picayune's ParadeCam (which switches to the StreetcarCam when the parades aren't happening).
