Mardi Gras breaks up the grind of winter with a day of freewheeling pleasure-seeking. With its raucous Mardi Gras celebration, the Fat Tuesday Block Party turns a chunk of Miami into a miniature New Orleans. Live music fills the air as the crowd mingles and dances to the beat. Meanwhile, entertainers of all stripes walk on stilts, drum, and toss beads to revelers and lurking magpies.
