The American city of New Orleans always celebrates carnival in a big way. The highlights of this annual festival, called Mardi Gras, are the multi-colored parades organized by the Krewes, which are carnival associations. Every year three krewes – Orpheus, Bacchus and Endymion – try to outdo themselves. This celebration typically includes film actors, singers and famous personalities who go on board the dozens of floats that are part of the parades. It is in the huge audience that attends this carnival, and the background of the event, where the group of photographers led by Long Distance Photo Expeditions will find the true photographic action.
