    Twelfth Night (January 6th) kicked off the 2014 Carnival Season. Fat Tuesday is March 4 this year. Who's coming? Any costume ideas yet?

    I've always wanted to go, but probably never will. I hate people.

    I know a lot of people who hate crowds but love Mardi Gras. Everyone is having the best time and everyone is in a great mood. You might be pleasantly surprised.

    My friends and I are going to Carnival in Rio on Feb. 24- March 8. I've to Rio's Carnival several times and it's the biggest parties in the world and sambadrome way better than Mardi Gras in New Orleans or Sdyney, Australia.

    That's nice, but this thread is about NEW ORLEANS Mardi Gras. My guess is that they're all unique and enjoyable.

    I am going. Endymion Extravaganza. I may stay through Fat Tuesday if I can find a reasonable place to stay.

    Leaving before Fat Tuesday is like putting your clothes on before you climax!

    I've never liked Southern Decadence. It never feels inclusive in the way Mardi Gras does. Mardi Gras screams loud and clear "everyone is welcome." I don't get that from the Southern Decadence crowd.

    I meant I would be there Fat Tuesday. Leaving Wednesday or Thursday.
    Any good reasonable options for lodging? Staying at the Sheraton on Canal for 3 nights, but was looking for something cheaper for Sunday-Wednesday.

    I get asked this a lot, but since I never rent hotels in my home town, I have no idea. However I doubt there are any rooms left at this point.

    Try a hostel. A friend I just met stayed at on at 1628 Carondelet St. I don't remember the name but it's on the web. She said it was new and very clean. She's stayed in hostels all over the world so she knows what she's talking about.

    Good idea. Although a lot of hostels do not take reservations and I would not want to waltz in during Mardi Gras and expect a room.
