And New Orleans natives really know how to prepare for all the Mardi Gras fun. Before the parades rolled, tents along the route, sidewalk and neutral ground side, were already filled with music and the smell of great food.

On the menu at one tent, crawfish, shirmp, turkey necks, corn and potatoes.
