Get ready for the party of the year - Mardi Gras in New Orleans
The idea is to have an entire fleet of people, buses and buses of them, come together in a heady display of celebration - this is what mass indulgence of orgiastic parade, costumes, songs and musicals, performances by famous faces and delectable dances (and dancers).and of course, the endless supply of food and drinks.all in the name of celebrating a common religion. Irregardless of what it's called in different countries, whether it's Mardi Gras, Fastnacht or Carnaval.they're essentially the same. People from all over the country come together in throngs with personal cars and chartered party buses in a mass celebration of sorts every year.
The exact date of such celebrations is generally unpredictable if we're looking at the common calendar because each year the celebration date changes. But everyone looks forward to such a party that promises after life and reflection and alteration of one's life focus. Such parties' roots stems from pagan tradition and slowly, through the years, it has morphed into what we have today.something uproarious, wild, lively and most of the time.commercial.
Since such parties naturally attract many of the locals and many tourists, cities are organized, built and planned around such annual events. For instance, the Carnival of Binche (Belgium) which is a drum parade magnified by a hundred times, and also the Mam'selles party where men dress up in women's clothes and parade all over the street, tourists and party bus operators benefit tremendously around this time of the year. A huge climb in demand for party buses can be seen whenever these parties roll around because most of the attendees of a party of this kind come in groups. There is, shall we say, no better way to get to a single destination in a group than a party bus. But party bus operators are not the only people to benefit from these annual parties because in Rio Janeiro, it's been said that hotel sales make a total revenue of about $10.4 million during these events.
As with Mardi Gras in other parts of the world, Mardi Gras is also traditionally celebrated in New Orleans since 1699 where the party attracts buses and buses of people from all parts of the country and world. All eyes are set on New Orleans whenever Mardi Gras rolls around. In fact, Mardi Gras can be said to be the main bread and butter of the New Orleans tourism industry because the impact this party has on the economy of New Orleans is comparable to the impact the Super Bowl has on it.which is said to be equivalent to about $300 million every year. Ever since Katrina came and went, Mardi Gras has become even more important to the city.
As mentioned, the date for Mardi Gras is not predetermined but according to the New Orleans Mardi Gras official website, http://www.mardigrasday.com , the party will be held from February 10, 2007 until February 20, 2007 . For detailed information on dates and location of where the Mardi Gras party will be held in New Orleans , visit the official website's schedule page here .
For the Mardi Gras in New Orleans 2007, the party will be even more meaningful than before because the organizers will be donating funds towards rebuilding New Orleans and funding it's reconstruction efforts. In fact, the organizers are leading fund donors to http://hsus.org/ and http://www.redcross.org/ where continuous effort is still being carried out to help bring New Orleans back to what it was before.
This is not the first time that Mardi Gras is being used as a means to pump money into the city because back in 1872, Mardi Gras was used as a means to jumpstart the city's ailing economy. Even at that time, many people started booking and hiring party buses months ahead of time just to make sure that there was space and transportation means for them for Mardi Gras.
