The Vagabrothers explore New Orleans, Louisiana during the biggest party in America – Mardi Gras. EPIC TIMES!

When they weren’t chugging beers and throwing beads on Bourbon Street, they managed to move past the party to discover the cultural roots of the tradition.

  1. Thank you for doing such a great job showing the beauty of NOLA, and teaching ppl what they are all about.

  2. Cool. Enjoyed seeing it through your eyes. Smart to focus on "community" & "neighborhood". Nice. (NOLA)

  3. This was A AWFUL REPRESENTATION OF MARDI Gras.. and we don't pronounce carnival. CARNEE VOL. .. ITS PLAIN OLD CARNIVAL. LIKE CARNIVAL CRUISE. SMH..

  4. folks are returning to New Orleans…. making Atlanta and charlotte and Nashville and Memphis and Houston less hoody.

  5. The real french speaking Acadiana,cajun,people from the outer bayous of
    New orlins, like 50 miles southwest terrebonne ,lafayette , they say Nawlins

  6. Who cares on how they say New Orleans, real people that live in New Orleans understand that they are tourists, and expect them not to say New Orleans or street names right. Chill out. Just enjoy the video and don’t get triggered on how they say New Orleans.

  7. This is only one version of Mardi Gras. I'm bout 2 hours west of new Orleans, in Acadia parish. A.k.a Cajun country. Our Mardi Gras is a more traditional take, where people wake up at 6 in the morning, and make their way to our Sattle tramp for the Courir de Mardi Gras, which simply means Mardi Gras run. What we do is travel to different stops along a back country road, and Chase a live chicken in someone's yard (the person is aware of this and the same houses are used traditionally each year). During this time, people drink, and crowds of people follow the chicken wagon (a trailer for the men actually taking part in the run) along with other floats in the parade. This is all leading up to the parade itself, which takes place down the main street of my town.

  8. First hand information from people like you who travel, ask and share with the world what they know. Thank you guys. https://www.whenholiday.com/en-us/mardi-gras-shrove-tuesday/

  9. If you were to actually wanting to see the history of Mardi Gras why didn’t you go to the actual HOME of Mardi Gras…MOBILE, ALABAMA

  10. Cool but should’ve stayed uptown… downtown kinda bleaux and has a lot of Mississippi etc trash there. Respect

  11. I'll be there soon!!!!!!! In a few weeks!! Solo for the first 5 days, so hopefully I can make friends while down there! So exciting, scary and riveting!

  12. Thank you for your research and travels , I was very vague about New Orleans and Mardi Gras were foreign to me , well done??

  13. I cringed when I heard New Orleenz. The tourists hear N'awlins strictly due to the accent.

  14. Hi this Maria Reyes I LOVE YOUR ATMOSPHERE OF MATI GRAS, that's what I was wanting to make a REYES GOSPEL CAFE, I pray for Louisiana

  15. "There is more to Mardi Gras than booze, beads, Bourbon Street and boobs." No, that about sums it up, other than parties

  16. Mardi Gras was started in Mobile, Alabama, not New Orleans! If you want a true Mardi Gras parade, then Mobile is the place to go.

  17. been there done that …well, the people are amazing what a good party town,,going back with my new wife…good times

  18. true…N.O. is NOT part of the 49 states…..we are a culture on our own…we owned music….Little Richard, Alan Toussaint
