38th Annual MARDI GRAS GUIDE GOES DIGITAL

On January 6-the official opening of the Carnival season in New Orleans-publisher ARTHUR HARDY announced the launch of an electronic version of his best-selling annual magazine, the Mardi Gras Guide. For the first time ever, the entire contents of the 160-page annual publication are available in a digital format for the same $4.99 cover price as the printed version, which has sold more than 2.5 million copies since its inception. The 2014 edition includes a history of Mardi Gras, a "Royalty Gallery" featuring photos of the kings and queens of more than 30 parades, answers to FAQs, individual profiles and maps of more than 50 parades, What's New, and behind the scenes stories on the celebration's movers and shakers. Also included are live links to more than 100 Mardi Gras krewes and advertisers who share in the joys of the festive season in New Orleans.  As a bonus, the digital edition will provide updated information on last minute parade route changes or the addition of celebrity riders."

Mardi Gras falls late this year, on March 4.
