Crowds of revelers are seen on Bourbon Street from the balcony of the Royal Sonesta Hotel during Mardi Gras in New Orleans, Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013. Despite threatening skies, the Mardi Gras party carried on as thousands of costumed revelers cheered glitzy floats with make-believe monarchs in an all-out bash before Lent.   Crowds were a little smaller than recent years, perhaps influenced by the forecast of rain. Still, parades went off as scheduled even as a fog settled over the riverfront and downtown areas.
