Some call it Carnival.
Others, Fat Tuesday.
Most Americans, however, know today's celebration by its French name: Mardi Gras. The annual New Orleans bacchanal will reach its ostentatious climax in the French Quarter this evening. But Mardi Gras isn't just a Louisiana affair. People in cities all over the world are celebrating the occasion, from Rio de Janeiro and Sydney to Venice and Cologne.
Personally, I grew up attending Mardi Gras in New Orleans....
and also had the opportunity to experience Carnival in Spain..
but also FUN!
enjoy a few more photos of both..
