A three-night extravaganza on the weekend leading up to Carnival, Mardi Gras for All Y’all featured everything you could imagine – parades, food, music, culture, history, architecture, and most importantly, fun. We were optimistic that our production would be well received by the public. Honestly, however, we could have never anticipated the size of the response. More than 1.7 million views of the online broadcast from all 50 states and 105 countries. We had viewers from as far away as Nepal. It truly crystallized something we knew in advance – everyone loves Louisiana, and everyone loves Mardi Gras.
Our efforts won us the prestigious Gold Telly Award in the non-broadcast travel tourism category plus 2 Bronze Telly Awards for Virtual Events and Experiences for Online and for Travel/Tourism for Online. We’re also nominated for a Webby award as well.
