As parades begin rolling in the run up to Fat Tuesday, Crescent City residents and visitors are reminded that nothing looks or sounds like a parade — it's a veritable sensory smorgasbord. For those who can't be here or who haven't yet made it down to the parade route, here's a taste of the Carnival flavor.
