On Fat Tuesday, the Mardi Gras Indians come out of their respective neighborhoods and converge underneath the Claiborne overpass, the nexus of Mardi Gras for much of the black community. In a picture from 2013, Big Chief Victor Harris of Fi Yi Yi (also known as the Mandingo Warriors), walks down St. Bernard Avenue as the rain starts to fall. Two men stretched out plastic sheeting to protect his suit as the chief shouted one of his chants.

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.
