Mardi Gras is the holy grail of New Orleans tourism. This is the season that makes or breaks many businesses in the area, especially in the post-Katrina climate. Tourists from around the world, all walks of life, and all kinds of financial situations make plans each year to attend various events either leading up to or on Mardi Gras Day (which is the Tuesday before Lent begins).
Ironically, one of the biggest New Orleans attractions isn't something you can visit or touch and it didn't originate in New Orleans. That being said, New Orleans has taken Mardi Gras and made it one of the most profitable and entertaining activities in New Orleans. If you have plans to take in the sights of New Orleans, Mardi Gras is a great time of year to take in all kinds of amazing sights. For many visitors Mardi Gras is always the top of the list of things to do in New Orleans.
