What makes them 'so great' to make the Top 3?

  1. New Orleans: Simply the biggest & the best
  2. Mobile: Simply the OLDEST - the birthplace of Mardi Gras!
  3. Orange Beach (& Gulf Shores) - where else can you have Mardi Gras & sugar-white sands literally side-by-side, together?! Orange Beach parades on a Saturday & then joins up after the Gulf Shores Parade - for 1 long family-friendly parade ON MARDI GRAS DAY, FAT TUESDAY!!!

*** Fairhope & Daphne make a close 4th on the 'Eastern Shore' of Mobile, for their tremendous 'Family-Friendly Mardi Gras parades appeal!' but with no parades on Mardi Gras Day, Fat Tuesday, they can't be in the Top 3, nationally, but in Alabama, definitely worth seeing!
