EarthCam Delivers the Energy and Excitement of Mardi Gras in New Orleans


New York, February 16, 2012 -- Starting today you can travel virtually to the heart of the great city of New Orleans for the biggest party of the year, Mardi Gras! EarthCam invites you to join the throngs of people who gather on Bourbon Street to catch beads and dance like crazy. Feel like you're at the party every day leading up to Fat Tuesday, February 21:

EarthCam recently installed three new HD webcams outfitted with the latest technology and will deliver live video streams free to the public. The first webcam, located on the corner of Bourbon Street and St. Peter Street, offers the best spot to see all the action. Get an up close, high definition street-level look at the colorful performers and thousands of tourists clamoring for a coveted strand of beads.

Virtually travel to a nearby balcony to get an exclusive birds-eye view from the second webcam, perched high above the overflowing streets. This HD streaming camera is completely robotic and includes audio as well, delivering a true "Nawlins" experience from several interesting angles.

EarthCam will also take you inside the famous Cat's Meow Karaoke Bar with a third HD webcam, giving viewers a front row seat to the always entertaining (and sometimes uninhibited) performers on stage. Watch in real-time as people belt out their favorites songs and hear the cheers (or jeers) from the audience in this local hot spot.

EarthCam cameras will remain live long after the party has ended on Fat Tuesday, capturing the party that is always on in beautiful New Orleans. Visit the Mardi Gras archives to relive this epic celebration over and over again. As they say in the Big Easy, "Laissez les bons temps rouler!"
