Mardi Gras airport hotel transfers
If you’ll be flying into Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport this coming March, chances are you’ll be coming into town for Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras 2019 begins on March 5. And with nearly a million and a half people attending this event annually, you’re not alone. The first thing you’ll want to do is get to your hotel, so make sure to book your airport ride before you leave or you might be left waiting at the airport for hours. Getting to your hotel is only half of the battle; you’ll also need a lift to the French Quarter to watch the Mardi Gras parade and to join in the celebration so make sure to arrange that ahead of time too. You’ll be glad you booked your shared ride shuttle, taxi, private sedan, or limousine before your trip.
Mardi Gras is also referred to as "Fat Tuesday" and takes place every year about two weeks prior to Ash Wednesday. It’s a time of celebration before the upcoming Lent season. It is probably what New Orleans is most famous for, and it is quite an event! The Mardi Gras parade and festivities in NOLA is famous the world over.
