Did you know?

New Orleans was named after the Duke of Orleans. Also known as Nola or the Big Easy, the city is also famous for its music, cuisine and festivals – most notably Mardi Gras dating back to French colonial times. Do you celebrate Mardi Gras?



After the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in the late summer of 2005, the city held its Mardi Gras tradition.
Some objected to holding a celebration after so many people had died and so many remained displaced.
For others, it was a way to express the spirit of the city was alive.
