The invitation-only honor to ride on a float in a Mardi Gras parade is extraordinarily exclusive—a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for even the most seasoned traveler. Until now.
AFAR Experiences is heading to New Orleans this March 2nd to 4th for three days and two nights of Mardi Gras fun, which will culminate in a float ride with the Krewe of Orpheus, a "super krewe" that boasts one of the largest and most spectacular parades.
Leading up to Lundi Gras, the night before Mardi Gras and the day of the Orpheus parade, AFAR will offer attendees an authentic, exclusive opportunity to experience Mardi Gras just as the locals do: from their front porches, at their crawfish boils, and on the city's neighborhood streets, surrounded by friends, family and revelers of all ages. Plus, we'll introduce attendees to some of the city's most respected and knowledgeable Mardi Gras “insiders,” from writers and historians to Mardi Gras Indians. And all of this while feasting on traditional NOLA cuisine and grooving to live musical performances.
Mardi Gras is a time to be colorful, be joyous, and be with incredible new (and old) friends. Gather your glitter, sequins, masks and costumes, and celebrate Carnival season right—with AFAR Experiences.
