Mardi Gras 2019 | Tips from HostsNola

How prepared are you for Mardi Gras? While some paraders are Mardi Gras pros, tourists and many others might get overwhelmed in their Mardi Gras prep. HostsNola, is here to help. If you’re heading out to the parade routes, make sure these top five parade essentials are on your list.


Trust us, your legs will thank you later. On top of being a resting place, a couple of chairs for you and the family will mark your places on the route, but remember to be courteous. If you are bringing children, look into a Mardi Gras ladder.


You have to have bags to put your throws in! You can use backpacks, reusable grocery bags,or even pillowcases.


Trust us on this one, bars and restaurants will be way too crowded during Mardi Gras. Remember that Mardi Gras is a marathon and not a race. To make sure that you don’t get thirsty, save some cash by packing your drinks ahead of time. In addition to alcoholic beverages, bring plenty of water!

Ice Chest

If you’re bringing food and drinks to enjoy while on the parade route, you’ll need an ice chest to store everything. Since you will more than likely walk a lot, bring an ice chest with wheels.

Hand Sanitizer

We don’t have to tell you that Mardi Gras is a germ breeding ground, especially with so many viruses going around. Hand sanitizer will help you keep your hands clean no matter what the situation is!
