FILE -In this Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2012 file photo, The Hardy Fowler King of Carnival greets parade goers as the Rex Parade moves through the central business district of New Orleans. Fat Tuesday is still more than a month away, but the Carnival season of balls, parties and parades kicks off Monday. In New Orleans, the ball of the 12th Night Revelers begins the social season, while a streetcar ride of the Phunny Phorty Phellows marks the first street appearance of the celebration. Between Monday and Mardi Gras _ Feb. 12 _ parades and gala balls will be held in dozens of communities along the French Gulf Coast until Carnival gives way to the Lenten season.
