Lafayette Square is not just a park. If you have ever heard of Mardi Gras, the festival to excite and delight, Lafayette Square is the host of several of the parade attractions. If you're in Louisiana between the 6th and 17th of February, then you're in for a treat. Ranging anywhere from $5.00 to $50.00, you can purchase parade tickets, and line the streets of this 2.5 acre park. It is situated perfectly to allow access to Lafayette Street, St. Charles Avenue, North & South Maestri Street, and Camp St.
If you're staying at the Blake Hotel, this is Mardi Gras at your door step. If you're going for the full experience, you'll want to head over to the French Quarter, find parking ahead of time, get your tickets and spot early, because the quarter is tight quarters for the adventurous.
