This year the parades won't roll (for good reason) but the locals are putting on a "virtual" show. If you've never been to Mardi Gras, this should give some insight into all the craziness. Jimmy Buffett will participate.

No surprise, then, that Buffett agreed to contribute to “Mardi Gras For All Y’all,” the free, online event airing Feb. 12-14. Available on the NOLA.com and theadvocate.com news websites, YouTube and Facebook Live, "Mardi Gras For All Y'All" will give viewers an up-close, virtual experience, with floats, food, music, costumes and feature stories detailing the history, culture and traditions behind the Carnival season.

Presented by NOLA.com and Blaine Kern’s Mardi Gras World, “Mardi Gras for All Y’all” features more than four hours of programming, with 90 individual segments and 20 musical performances. The show will rebroadcast on Lundi Gras (Feb. 15) and Mardi Gras (Feb. 16).

In addition to Buffett, Hoda Kotb, author Walter Isaacson, Emeril Lagasse, actor Bryan Batt, political guru James Carville and New Orleans Saints legend Archie Manning are slated to lend their insights to “Mardi Gras for All Y’all,” which aims to help keep Carnival alive even though the actual parades have been canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Good for Jimmy.

Everybody should go to Mardi Gras at least once... and if you do it right (meaning, spend your time Uptown and stay clear of Bourbon Street, which is strictly for college kids), chances are really good you'll want to go again.
