The video playing shows two parades—the 1939 parade of the Infant Mystics, the 1928 and 1929 parades of The Order of Myths, and the 2005 parade of the Crewe of Columbus. This allows you to see how float construction has evolved. Note the barricades that line the street in the later portion of the video. Experiencing Mardi Gras is about engaging yourself in the sights, sounds, and smells of Carnival. From the video you can see and hear a parade, but you’ll have to visit Mobile during Mardi Gras to get a true feel of Carnival.
