NEW ORLEANS – Track the progress of Mardi Gras parades in real time this Carnival season with Experience Mardi Gras, a new app downloadable to Apple® or Droid® mobile devices free of charge.

Developed by WWL-TV and Zehnder Communications, Experience Mardi Gras offers PARADE TRACKER, which maps the real-time progress of one major New Orleans parade each day, beginning with the Krewe of Muses on March 3 and ending with the legendary Krewe of Zulu on Fat Tuesday, March 8. Additional parades will be tracked each year.

Other Experience Mardi Gras features include:
· Complete New Orleans parade schedules and start times.
· All New Orleans parade routes plotted on Google Maps®.
· Parade video and interviews from WWL-TV.
· Video with Mardi Gras legends like Al “Carnival Time” Johnson.
· Up-to-the-minute listings of live music and other Mardi Gras events.

“We designed this app to be the ultimate tool for Mardi Gras,” said David Robison, director of digital media for WWL. “Whether you’re a die-hard local, out-of-towner, traveling by yourself or with a group, this app keeps all the details updated and in one place.”

Experience Mardi Gras can be downloaded from the iPhone® and Droid® online app stores free of charge through generous sponsorships from Zatarain’s® and Tabasco®. In addition, Blain Kern’s Mardi Gras World provided access to floats for the PARADE TRACKER feature.
