Annual Greasing Of The Poles Preparations For Mardi Gras In New Orleans

Gotta love the Big Easy, where preparations for Mardi Gras includes painting the poles supporting the balconies in the French Quarter. What was originally done for safety purposes (making sure people don’t climb up the poles to either see the parades better or worse, climb up to the balconies above) has become an annual event with all the pageantry you’d expect from business owners and residents of the quarter. Thanks to New Orleans Saints punter Thomas Morstead for capturing this event on Facebook video giving us a glimpse of what’s to come as Mardi Gras approaches.
