For all those who can't make it down to New Orleans for Mardi Gras this year, the Times-Picayune has a solution: ParadeCam. Most of the year the camera that films the intersection of Napoleon Street and St. Charles Avenue is called StreetcarCam, but come Fat Tuesday...voila, a remote feed from a popular viewing spot. Click here to view the revelry happening at that location and others: The BourboCam shows the Bourbon Street party beginning at 4pm.
