Not totally naked, but almost naked, and it also depends on which weekend and in what location. The second weekend and Mardi Gras Day on Bourbon Street - nobody cares if you show your boobs for beads, but you still might be arrested for showing your dick, unless you are in — blocks of Bourbon st where all the gay clubs are. First weekend cops can still arrest some really drunk girls showing boobs, they do not like arresting women, but if you get rude when they tell you to cover up - they might. Outside of Bourb Outside of Bourbon street, you might go body painted or in a very revealing costume, but not bare-chested or showing any genitalia.
F inally, the season of making errors in New Orleans is here. And as a longtime resident, I can tell you that nothing, save Mardi Gras day itself, has ever lived up to its star billing like the Decadence Ball. The event was the true carnival torchbearer, much more so than the dowdy official season-opening parties. My own invitation had appeared a week earlier, attached with a ribbon to my front door. The year before, 32 musicians had stood on stage at the height of the festivities, not including the six totally nude body-painted female vocalists. The band finally stopped playing at 9am, but only because the party ran out of booze and no one was sober enough to go get more. The gathering was dangerous, given the large amount of unrestricted fire involved. It took place in a sticky year-old molasses factory, and the neighborhood of abandoned warehouses was also a bit edgy.

Knowing them will also help you avoid getting arrested or fined, having to move your setup during the parade, and being rightfully judged by the fellow revelers. Those first few feet of grass or sidewalk are meant for everyone trying to enjoy the parade and catch beads. Also, occasionally, the parade floats have been known to jump the curb; your personal effects could be damaged in the event this happened. The curb and the neutral ground are fair game to all who attend the parades. Please do not move unoccupied chairs and ladders, as well as unattended coolers and personal belongings along the parade route to carve your own spot. Plus, families tend to use the same spots year after year.
We have been married a mere 3. The point of a date is to get to know someone better. Personally I have a rule that I will not enter a relationship with a believing Mormon. Your mids is still young. By all means, I encourage you to try having those discussions and to make a mental note of when you would choose to walk away instead. You will get to mingle with a lot of new people, and who knows, maybe you will also find the guy or girl of your dreams there.
