Speaking of safety...
Remember the time as a kid when you first rode a bike that your parents made sure you wore a helmet?
Well what if you were told that as an adult...you still have a set of rules to follow...especially during the Mardi Gras season.
According to Mardi Gras New Orleans News...there are many things to keep in mind as you make your way through the bustling streets and crowds during this well-celebrated holiday season.
For starters...don't have your money out for longer than needed because professional pickpocketing occurs quite often than what people think.
Don't park in front of driveways, fire hydrants or anywhere else that you wouldn't usually park.
Make sure to lock your vehicles...keep your children close, and don't let them wander off.
All of these rules help to ensure the safety and protection of everyone who decided to enjoy the holiday.
Although these rules are throughout New Orleans...the same things still apply worldwide and even locally.
Whether you're in Murfreesboro or Nashville... throwing beads or watching performers on stilts...make sure to be careful as you enjoy this festive celebration.
