Mardi Gras World drawing to be a part of the Mardi Gras Experience

Many New Orleanians live in NOLA their whole lives and never get to experience a parade from the rider's perspective. This competition is open to out of town visitors and locals alike!

This fall, Mardi Gras World is teaming up with the New Orleans Hotel Collection and the Krewe of Orpheus to offer one lucky winner, and a guest of their choice, a chance to not just experience Mardi Gras, but be a part of it! Visitors to Mardi Gras World this fall can enter themselves into a drawing to win a trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras 2013, inclusive of money for travel, a four night hotel stay in the French Quarter, and the opportunity to ride in Orpheus - beads and throws included.

This unbelievable opportunity is open to anyone and everyone (over 21 years of age) who saunters down to Mardi Gras World between now and December 31st, 2012!

Want to know more?

The GRAND PRIZE includes:

-Budget for roundtrip airfare for two (2) to New Orleans from anywhere in the Continental US.

-A four (4) night stay at the Dauphine Orleans Hotel, one of the New Orleans Hotel Collection's finest properties, just a block from Bourbon St. Stay in the heart of the French Quarter, where the Mardi Gras festivities begin at your doorstep!

-Two (2) rider spots on floats in the Krewe of Orpheus Parade: Be a part of a New Orleans tradition! Riding in a parade is a heavily coveted New Orleans honor. Orpheus, one of the four ‘super-krewes' of Mardi Gras, was founded in 1993 by Harry Connick Jr. Since then, it has rolled annually on the Monday before Mardi Gras day with its famously beautiful flower-bedecked floats. Your chance to ride includes your spot on the float, costumes, and most importantly, your beads to throw! Over 1.5 Million strings of beads are thrown from an average parade. Luckily, yours will be on us!

-Two tickets to the Krewe of Orpheus Ball - a one-of-a-kind after party at the end of the parade that you're sure to never forget.

Mardi Gras parades are at the heart of New Orleans Mardi Gras traditions. Come to Mardi Gras World, where we create the magic of every float, and where it's Mardi Gras 365 days a year. Then, enter to win to experience Mardi Gras at the best time of the year, from the best vantage point that money can buy! Even better, for you, it'll all be FREE! Come down to Mardi Gras World and enter to win, today!

This offer is open to all visitors to Mardi Gras World who are 21 years of age or older prior to arrival in New Orleans. All entries to the contest must be made on site. Travel budget will be $500.00/person for roundtrip transportation to New Orleans. Hotel accommodations are confirmed for arrival any four nights from Friday Feb 8 to 12.  Additional nights may be purchased at special discounted rate of $189 per night.  Stay includes daily breakfast buffet, welcome drink at May Bailey's bar, free in room coffee, bottled water and wifi. No purchase necessary.
