Have fun and be courteous to others. Try not to block anybody’s view and don’t get mad if the person in front of you catches a throw you wanted.  Don’t get in the way of someone else’s catch. If the rider wants to throw you something from the float, they’ll make eye contact with you and throw in your direction. Remember, there are plenty of other throws to come that you will catch. Also, never reach over a kid to catch a throw — yes, we have seen it happen. Consider catching the item and giving it to the kids around you.

Check out our drone video of the Destrehan Plantation. The plantation sits just 20 minutes outside New Orleans on the Mississippi River. Established in 1787 the Destrehan Plantation remains the oldest documented plantation home in the lower Mississippi Valley. Rene-Robert Cavelier Sieur de Salle, who had travelled the Mississippi river, claimed this territory for France anticipating it to be a source of great wealth for the country. A young son of a Paris financial family, which was part of the court of Louis XV, packed his trunks and sailed to the new world. Destined to find a family that would have a profound impact on Louisiana and the entire United States, he helped set standards by which new territories would be included into the union and shaped the laws of the State of Louisiana. Little did this young man suspect that his son’s family home would still be standing in the 21st century. We now refer to this home as Destrehan Plantation.
