Le Festival de Mardi Gras is underway at Cajun Field. It’s where all the parades end, and where you can hear live music, enjoy carnival rides and games, and find food.
The event is free with a $10 parking fee, but you have to buy a wristband to ride the rides. Children under 42 inches may be required to ride some of the attractions with a paying adult rider for safety purposes.
Wristbands cost upwards of $28. For information, click here.
