Mardi Gras 2006 Will Roll! 

Next years extravagant fortnight of parades and parties in New Orleans is scheduled to begin February 17, 2006 and culminates with the, Fat Tuesday, celebration on February 28, 2006.

The 2006 Mardi Gras celebrates the 150th anniversary of the New Orleans' first formal parades and the city says that it sends a message to the world that the good times will continue to roll and New Orleans is being re-born after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina . Over a million people were displaced by the storm and the death toll stands at about 1,400.

Organizers and city officials have said the bead-throwing show will go on, though obviously, in a scaled-down form.
