It’s Carnival Time in New Orleans! - Episode #003

Beyond Bourbon Street is the podcast where we explore the food, music, places, people and events that make New Orleans unique.  Whether you are planning a trip, currently living in New Orleans or simply wanting a taste of the Crescent City from wherever you are, you’ve come to the right place!

During today’s episode we discuss the history of carnival and twelfth night in New Orleans.  Along the way, Mark talks about king cakes, Mardi Gras, parades and masquerade balls.  And, if you stick around past the closing music, there might be some lagniappe!
