Beads have been around as a decorative choice for a while now, but perhaps they’re most memorable for being associated with Mardi Gras. With that being said, it’s that time of the year again for New Orleans to get ready for the rowdiest party in North America with locals and tourists alike. The city’s going to show what southern hospitality is all about through parades, binge drinking, and just about everything else that’ll make up a night you won’t--or rather, will likely--forget. Other unique sights one can definitely expect are extremely elaborate costumes and of course, the infamous beads.
