A Decorated Bike at New Orleans Mardi Gras

c. N.A. Nungesser
On the parade route and especially in the French Quarter and the Marigny there are small parades, individual floats and displays, and interactive craziness on Mardi Gras day. But there are Mardi Gras surprises in many New Orleans neighborhoods. For instance,ran across a totally unexpected Mardi Gras Indian parade on an Algiers Point street on Mardi Gras Day. Bike floats and decorated wagons or cars of various degrees of effort, wit, and creativity are all around.
