It’s that time of year again, when Mardi Gras brings people from all over the U.S. and elsewhere for a few weeks of non-stop fun in New Orleans. The volume of people can be a bit scary for anyone, but for people with disabilities, the crowds may seem unnerving. However, there are some safe ways to enjoy it for everyone, whether you have disabilities or not.

A Mardi Gras Parade is one such way to participate in the Mardi Gras festivities, yet without having to get lost among the larger crowds in the evenings. When bringing someone with disabilities, knowing and following the rules is a good place to start, however, it is good to have a plan.

Although the cooler weather is always a welcome feeling during fall in Louisiana, so with it comes the dreaded “allergy” season. There are many culprits for autumn allergies. In Louisiana, we have plenty of plants like pigweed, ragweed, sheep sorrel and other trees and grasses which release pollen during the fall. Especially after a particularly balmy, hot, humid summer, these conditions make it ripe for allergy-rich weeds to grow freely and plentifully.

Some people call the fall allergy season “hay fever”, which is a traditional phrase that stems from the farming days of long ago, although they have little bearing on today’s allergies. Hay is not predominately a cause for allergies, but the same itching, watering eyes and sniffy nose that one gets from a hay field can be likened to the term.
