New York, March 4, 2014 -- New Orleans is poised and ready for the biggest celebration of the year…Mardi Gras! The party descends on this city every year, bringing with it non-stop fun, colorful characters and crazy antics. EarthCam invites people around the world to be a part of it all with their live streaming webcams.
EarthCam and the Cats Meow karaoke bar have teamed up to deliver this unique viewing experience. Virtually step onto the sidewalks of Bourbon Street for a street-level perspective of the action, complete with real-time audio of everything taking place in the Big Easy. Another webcam takes viewers to a second-story balcony for a birds-eye view of the partiers throughout the French Quarter. See the bright lights and flashy signs that make this location so famous. A third camera invites people inside the Cats Meow for some true entertainment. Watch as some amazing (?!) performers take the stage and belt our their own unique renditions of their favorites tunes.
With EarthCam's exclusive mobile app, join the party from anywhere. Users can hop into a virtual photo booth, snap a picture wearing a classic Mardi Gras mask and share it via text message, email, Facebook and Twitter. Fun can also be shared when users include their friends by “throwing” some beads their way! With the app, users can take the sounds of the Big Easy wherever they go, with a special sound board of everything heard on Bourbon Street, including cheers for beads, the pop of an ice-cold drink and the festive music!
Long after the streets are cleaned up, EarthCam's New Orleans webcams will continue to deliver live streaming views of this fun and exciting location 24/7 for the world to enjoy. Travel here now by visiting http://www.earthcam.com/events/mardigras/.
