  • 42 Pins

Mardi Gras Indians are known for brilliant costumes, traditional music and marching, although parade routes are kept secret for these African-American krewes. Tribes often gather in the same areas each year, spots like Bayou St. John at Orleans Avenue in Mid-City and Orleans and North Claiborne near Armstrong Park.
