For two weeks the French quarter of New Orleans, the greatest city of Louisiana in south USA turns to a center of parties and loose fiestas. Mardi Gras carnival is held in many places around the world, but in New Orleans it reaches heights of beauty and joy that can’t be found in no other place.

The marvelous carnival in New Orleans which started in 1857 by French expatriates attracts each year thousands of locals and tourists who plan their arrival many months ahead.

Due to the numerous visitors during the festival days and the high demand for accommodations it is recommended to check hotel rates and book rooms well in advance. 

The carnival’s events reach its climax on “Fat Tuesday” with two colored parades marching in St. Charles Street:
Zulu parade that starts on 08:00 o’clock and Rex parade that starts on 10:00 o’clock.

United States background and overview
Britain's American colonies broke with the mother country in 1776 and were recognized as the new nation of the United States of America following the Treaty of Paris in 1783. During the 19th and 20th centuries, 37 new states were added to the original 13 as the nation expanded across the North American continent and acquired a number of overseas possessions. The two most traumatic experiences in the nation's history were the Civil War (1861-65), in which a northern Union of states defeated a secessionist Confederacy of 11 southern slave states, and the Great Depression of the 1930s, an economic downturn during which about a quarter of the labor force lost its jobs. Buoyed by victories in World Wars I and II and the end of the Cold War in 1991, the US remains the world's most powerful nation state. Since the end of World War II, the economy has achieved relatively steady growth, low unemployment and inflation, and rapid advances in technology.
