  "To see thousands of people clamoring up to a float hoping, begging for just one single string of beads contains some kind of pure desperate joy that doesn't happen anywhere but in New Orleans. The Krewe members that actually pay — and pay handsomely — for Mardi Gras to happen don't get anything out of it except the pleasure of having thrown one of the best parties in the world." Dave Thier in Forbes, in a story titled, "The Business of Mardi Gras."
