Mardi Gras Comes to an End on This “Fat Tuesday”

Mardi Gras season comes to an end on this Fat Tuesday.

Locals and tourists alike are in New Orleans for what’s expected to be the biggest Fat Tuesday since Hurricane Katrina.

Parades, costumes, beads and overall celebration there in NOLA — which has been going on for days.

Officials say security is tighter than ever before. More than 1,100 New Orleans police officers are on patrol and many undercover.

By the end of today, an estimated $840 Million will be poured into the local economy.
