Every year, hundreds of thousands of tourists flock to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras. But many don’t make it past the French Quarter, much less Bourbon Street. Unfortunately, the divide between how too many tourists experience Mardi Gras and how New Orleanians do, is vast. The biggest difference is that locals actively participate in carnival.
Participation is personal and takes different forms; some people like to ride on floats, others dance in the streets, while still others opt for the classier experience of attending carnival balls. What truly makes New Orleans special is that however you prefer to do it, there’s a way for you to celebrate the season with family and friends. And at the end of the day, that’s what it it’s all about.
Ennie’s Dancewear and Humbug Costume are excited to be one the region’s premiere outfitters for carnival. Whether you need majorette boots, custom costuming, or a ball gown, we’ve got you covered.
