On today’s show, it’s Mardi Gras season so Kevin Fitzwilliam gets you set for the celebration starting with this show. Kevin starts by talking about the great boost Mardi Gras brings to the New Orleans economy, but there is a drawback. What about the amount of trash that piles up? Is there a way to improve parades from that perspective? Kevin talks with his guests today: Holly Gros of Verdi Gras, Katrina Breeze of Krewe of Kolossus, and Jane Silva of St. Michael special school about finding ways to make Mardi Gras more efficient and sustainable. It’s all on this edition of All Things Local.
