Lafayette Square at St. Charles

Lafayette Square at St. Charles

There aren’t too many grandstands set for Mardi Gras but this spot is where to find the highest density of them.  Most of the stand owners will charge a small fee for enjoying the parades from higher up, but it is a price well worth paying if standing for hours fighting the crowds for beads isn’t your thing.
