Mardi Gras Celebrity Sightings
Every Mardi Gras, tales of celebrity sightings in New Orleans spread throughout the French Quarter and around the world…and it’s true. Whether they’re here to Grand Marshal a parade or just for the party, celebrities swarm New Orleans during Mardi Gras season
Celebrity Grand Marshals are a big draw for some of the best parades including Muses, Endymion, Bacchus, and Orpheus (Harry Connick Jr.’s Krewe) Big names like KISS, Flo Rida, Harry Connick Jr., KC and the Sunshine Band, Will Forte, Brett Michaels, Evan Rachel Wood, Jimmi Simpson, Mel Rodriguez, and more joined in on the festivities this year. While they are jamming out (or riding along) as a celebrity guest, photo opts are expected – and we’ve taken plenty!
But even megastars can take part in the merriment as onlookers. (Is there anyone who hasn’t seen the photo of Queen Bey having lunch like a regular
lady goodness with her fam during the festivities floating around the Internet?) We’ve fan girl/guyed over plenty celeb sightings (and we live here) so we know they can be ridiculously exciting. Our advice: Be cool. Treat them like normal people; they’ll appreciate it.
