Mobile (home of the original Mardi Gras) throws quite a party. City parks become campgrounds where campers bring their own portable toilets (and lock them). Open container laws are suspended.
Everything gets decorated somehow
Fairhope is a small town on the East side of Mobile Bay that throws a great family-oriented Mardi Gras.
Beads and Moonpies are plentiful.
The Escambia River (near Pensacola) appears to have fluctuating levels of two or so feet (look at the wet banks).
The Tentom (near Mobile) is a major shipping artery with a few large logs.
