Scenes from Mardi Gras merriment in the French Quarter: photo gallery

At Carnival time, the entire city of New Orleans becomes a spectacle. Photographer David Grunfeld prowled the French Quarter street on Sunday (Feb. 25) to capture the Mardi Gras revelers.

He spotted tourists on balconies, men in their underpants and someone who looked like the president. And everywhere people were wearing purple, green and gold.
