Today is Fat Tuesday, the last day to party hard before Ash Wednesday tomorrow. In New Orleans, hundreds of thousands crowded in the French Quarter to join in the fun. Even Santa Claus was there.
Tourists were expected to top the 700,000 mark that celebrated Mardi Gras in 2006.
This is the second Mardi Gras New Orleans has celebrated since Hurricane Katrina.
