EPISODES OF AMERICAN ROUTES WITH FLAMBEAU CARRIERS
From the show "Mardi Gras in New Orleans" originally aired on February 14th, 2007
Stay behind the barricades please--it's Carnival Time in New Orleans. We take the occasion to remember the life and passing of the leader of the Yellow Pocahontas, Allison "Tootie" Montana, the Mardi Gras Indian Chief of Chiefs who passed away in June 2005. Also the history behind a burlesque tune-turned Krewe of Rex theme, "If Ever I Cease To Love." And meet the hottest guys in the parade as we tote a torch with the flambeau carriers, lighting the route and accepting gratuities along the way.
