Laissez les bon temps rouler! Happy Mardi Gras! When you think of Mardi Gras, what comes to mind? Beads? Parades? Well, while those are part of the celebrations, Mardi Gras is actually a historic and deeply rooted event that goes back centuries in the culture of New Orleans.
Mardi Gras is an annual opportunity for New Orleans artists, musicians, and community leaders to showcase their culture to the world. Network:On has partnered with several cultural ambassadors from the Crescent City to share how Mardi Gras is all about connections.
