90 day notice

It was announced last week that 2007's Mardi Gras will be extended from 8 days last year to 10 days this year.

There will be parades/festivities from 2/9 through 2/11, then a two-day break without parades, and resuming from 2/14 until Mardi Gras on February 20.

Also, the number of krewes participating is up from 28 to 31.

While it's not a full restoration of pre-Katrina festivities, it continues to improve.

Of course, since a certain reader of this blog will be getting married a couple days before Mardi Gras, that might make attending the festivities in the Quarter a bit difficult. It's a little far from DC to NoLa.
