New Orleans braces for ‘Super Gras’ with record crowds expected for Super Bowl and Mardi Gras

New Orleans is gearing up for what they are calling “Super Gras”.  Due to the record number of people in town for Mardi Gras and then on top of that the people arriving for the Super Bowl is making for an extremely large and crazy party.  The Mardi Gras parades will not be held in the downtown area during the Super Bowl weekend, however there will be plenty of floats and parades leading up to the event as well as after the game.

They are estimating upwards of 150,000 people will be in town and the surrounding areas for Super Bowl weekend.  They also estimate over a million will visit the New Orleans area in the weeks prior to the big game.

Its sure to be a great season for the vendors and surrounding business.  After everything this city has gone through, the next few weeks will surely be a blessing. Have a fun and safe Mardi Gras, and if your lucky enough to be attending the game, I hope its a good one.
