Join Mardi Gras In New Orleans with Live Views from EarthCam


New York, February 7, 2013 -- What is just as exciting as being in New Orleans celebrating Mardi Gras? Watching it live from EarthCam with streaming webcams in the historic French Quarter! EarthCam continues its long-standing partnership with world-famous karaoke bar, Cats Meow, so people around the world can be a part of this cultural festival.

The Big Easy has little time to rest from hosting The Super Bowl last weekend as Mardi Gras madness is about to take over this famous location. New Orleans is globally recognized as the city that hosts the most colorful floats, liveliest Krewes and most festive music. Viewers from all over the world are invited to the party with EarthCam's webcams. A street-level camera located at the corner of Bourbon Street and St. Peter Street is the ultimate way to see the festivities. Watch as partiers gather in crazy costumes to collect as many beads as possible. A balcony-mounted camera delivers an aerial view of the action taking place on the streets below. A third webcam takes viewers inside the famous Cats Meow Karaoke Bar. Crank up the volume and enjoy the stage performers as they sing their own unique renditions of their favorite songs.

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 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
