Celebrating Mardi Gras with the Kids in New Orleans-MainPhoto


  • Decorate your Mardi Gras ladder. This year, the grandparents gifted my kids with one and they are so happy! A Mardi Gras ladder is basically a ladder with a seat box on top for younger children to be higher than ground level. This is great because your shoulders will get tired from carrying them (and you’ll be sore the next day), it brings them up to adult height (very helpful to catch the throws) and keeps them from wandering around and possibly getting lost in the crowd.
