  Mardi Gras Balcony
by ATXtraveler

During Mardi Gras, Beads are the currency used for different purposes. The kings and queens of Mardi Gras are the groups who have their own balcony. From up on the balcony, these folks have the best view of the happenings on the street.

If you are interested in staying on one of these balconies, you have to book up to one year in advance!

Enjoy Mardi Gras!
