Every year the City of New Orleans sets up viewing stands on St. Charles Avenue for the Mardi Gras Parades. This is a great way to see the parades if you're coming in from out of town and are not sure where to go to see the parades. The stands have access to private bathroom facilities and food and drink can be found nearby. Costs of the tickets vary according to parade, costing from $5 for the first parade to $50 for Mardi Gras Day. Some of the big Super Krewe Parade tickets sell out fast. So, if you're interested, go to this web site and get you tickets now for you're favorite parade or call 504 636 1071.
