unnamed AmRts FEB13We’re hitting the streets this week to celebrate – what else? – Mardi Gras! Even though we can’t celebrate as we usually do, we can still enjoy the sounds of Carnival seasons in years past. In this archive edition of American Routes, we meet parade float builders, visit the Backstreet Cultural Museum in Treme, discover a skull and bone gang and baby dolls, follow Mardi Gras Indians and learn why flamingos flock to Baton Rouge this time of year.

American Routes airs Saturdays at 2:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Download the FREE KRCB App @ iTunes & Google Play!
