    The biggest party month of the year is coming! Who's planning on partying for Mardi Gras or Carnival? The second month of the year brings the party before Lent arrives. It's the last chance to blow off some steam before the time of reflection. Of course you have the big celebrations in New Orleans and Carnival in Rio. But those are just two of the celebrations that take place in February. Are you planning on partying? If so, where?

    Mardi Gras vs Carnival

    It's seems always a toss between New Orleans Mardi Gras and Rio's Carnival for most people but Mardi Gras and Carnival are miles apart even though they share many things like flamboyant floats and people going to them to lose their inhibitions. For me, Mardi Gras is poor man's Carnival for those that cannot afford the trip to Rio.

    I would think that Rio has a bigger party than New Orleans, but they're both pretty fun. There are other places to celebrate too. Galveston Texas has a big celebration, and so do other places in Louisiana. Shreveport up in northern LA. celebrates a family-friendly Mardi Gras.
