Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, is March 4 this year. The holiday in most celebrated, of course, in the United States in the City of New Orleans. The celebration actually starts in earnest about two weeks earlier, with many Parades and Balls reaching their peak on Mardi Gras Day. A very fun virtualization of the event takes place in Second Life on the New Orleans Mardi Gras Sim. Just like Ryce is doing in these photographs, you can visit with crowds, ride floats, ride a motorcycle, and have a great deal of fun here. The sim may be a bit laggy because of all the temp rezzing of floats and crowds of people, you may need to give yourself a few minutes to log in effectively and cut your graphics back. New Orleans Mardi Gras is highly recommended
and definitely worth a visit.
