Mardi Gras 2014 was a Great Success!
Despite the wet and chilly weather on Mardi Gras day, we all enjoyed ourselves and made the best of it! Everyone loved watching the parades, catching lots of beads, partaking in the delicious food New Orleans has to offer, navigating the crowds, and enjoying the beautiful city! Some groups took a riverboat cruise while others “shopped until they dropped” at the French Market. Nighttime activities included a jazz concert by New Orleans musician Charmaine Neville and her band and a Haunted History tour of the French Quarter. There were many opportunities to educate the public about blindness and the capabilities of blind people! Kudos to all for the great teamwork! It is always amazing to see what an important confidence builder the trip is!
