St. Joseph's Night is a special magical night in New Orleans when people flock to one of several areas to pay tribute to the Mardi Gras Indian community. Like giant colorful birds, the Indians showcase their beautiful suits as they walk, sing and battle one another under the moonlight.
Indians generally gather around the following areas:
A.L. Davis Park at Washington Avenue and LaSalle Street
2nd and Dryades Streets
Under the Claiborne Bridge
St. Claude around Marais
St. Bernard Ave between Claiborne and Rampart
St. Claude Avenue in the Lower Ninth Ward
Indians stay on the move so if you’re scouting for them, keep a look out for large crowds and blue police lights. Happy St. Joseph's Night!
