Looking for an experience of a lifetime? Here is my favorite bucket list item package for Mardi Gras offered only by the Sheraton New Orleans hotel.
There are flashy costumes, partying, fun, music, celebrities and a lovely hotel stay in to celebrate in the world capitol of "Laissez les bons temps rouler!"
Carnival here is more than a month-long celebration before the austere Lenten season with parades and parties each week culminating in Lundi and Mardi Gras parades.
With this package you get to ride on the legendary Orpheus Krewe parade float in costume throwing beads along the parade route on its way into the convention center for the world’s largest black-tie and coolers tailgate party.
Sheraton New Orleans’ Exclusive Insider’s Experience Package will provide you everything for the time of your life. Before getting into your costume and loading up on the float, fill your personal beverage bottle with an adult drink. Go easy but a “Recovery Kit” is included in the package. Sounds funny, but you will need it. Here's a taste of what you get with the Mardi Gras Insider’s Experience for 2:
~Ride in the Krewe of Orpheus parade, co-founded by Harry Connick, Jr.,co-ed Super Krewe
~ornate krewe costumes and masks
~parade bead throws
