5 Ways You Can Be A Mardi Gras Star And Ride A Parade Float

It's a lot of fun to yell "Throw me something mister!" in the streets of New Orleans during
Mardi Gras to get the krewe members to hurl some beads at you. But have you ever thought about actually being a part of the action and riding on a parade float while throwing trinkets to the adoring crowds in your costume? 

Well there's a few ways you can do just that. One easy way to participate is to go through New Orleans Craigslist postings and look for krewe members advertising space available on their float. 

I've seen an ad that says they provide a costume, food and drinks included in the fee. Did a search for Mardi Gras in Community to find listings.
