Mobile with floats, parades, costumes, masks, doubloons and the much sought after beads.
Which city has the best Mardi Gras
Cool, I always thought it started out in New Orleans, though NOLA has the best Mardi Gras in my opinion because Mobile's one is smaller and so are the parades. New Orleans celebrations really thrown in everything with even nighttime parades such as the Krewe of Bacchus.
No doubt New Orleans has the biggest Mardi Gras in America..I think over 3 million-plus people visit the city during the celebration. I myself think too that New Orlean's Mardi Grass is the best because Krewes are also more elaborate and expensive than any others.
NOLA Mardi Gras is definitely an experience and one you don't forget. I enjoyed every minute of it. Here in Tampa, we have the annual Gasparilla Pirate Invasion going on since 1904. Same party-hearty atmosphere and thousands of folks screaming for beads!
