I have attached a link to the complete 2017 Mardi Gras parade schedule. Carnival begins in earnest today with Krewe de Vieux in the Quarter and ends on Tuesday, February 28. My personal favorite parades are D'Etat, Muses, Tucks, Thoth, and Bacchus.
Please be advised that police aggressively enforce Louisiana and municipal law during these parades. If you are arrested during Carnival, please contact a New Orleans criminal defense lawyer at the Law Office of Alex Kriksciun for a free consultation.
