New Orleans' Party Atmosphere Perfect For The City's Tenth Super Bowl

This year's Super Bowl host, New Orleans, is preparing to make this event one to remember. Combining the Super Bowl with a celebratory, Mardi Gras atmosphere, the 2013 Super Bowl is already exciting football fans in and out of Louisiana.

CINCINNATI, Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - New Orleans is getting ready to host its tenth Super Bowl in January, tying with Miami to be labeled the city to host the most Super Bowls. This year, the Super Bowl coincides with the city's Mardi Gras celebration.

New Orleans, already a city with a party atmosphere, is working to make the event bigger and better by combining the 2013 Super Bowl with a Mardi Gras celebratory feel. Some of the work the city has been doing to achieve this includes renovations of the North Causeway, which is undergoing a $1.4 million decorative lighting project. Additionally, the 36-foot high roman numerals to be set up on Super Bowl Boulevard will put on a sound and light show, and the NFL Tailgate Party is expected to hold close to 10,000 people.

While huge preparations are going on in New Orleans, fans outside of Louisiana are taking to the Internet to show their excitement and get pumped up. Super Bowl fan sites such as SuperBowl360.com are emerging on the Internet, preparing fans for the Super Bowl atmosphere before they even get to Louisiana in 2013.

Additionally, before and after the Super Bowl will be Mardi Gras celebrations. Parades will begin on January 28 th and begin again after the Super Bowl finishes, from February 6 th to 12 th.

In addition to creating a perfectly merged Super Bowl and Mardi Gras event, New Orleans is also preparing for the biggest Super Bowl it has hosted yet. The last year the city hosted the event, back in 2002, 86.6 million people watched the Super Bowl. More than 111.3 million are expected to watch this season, which is a 28 percent increase. New Orleans is well prepared for the expected size of January's event, having undergone construction, renovations, and landscaping especially for the 2013 Super Bowl. All projects are well on their way to being completed by the January 15 deadline.
