New Orleans, Louisiana: Mardi Gras World

What, you think those floats and other items that appear each year at Mardi Gras in New Orleans are made by elves at the North Pole who have little to do after Christmas? Think again.

Welcome to Mardi Gras World, where float-making is their business. Drive to the riverfront near downtown, and follow the green finger toward the parking lots.

Visitors can walk around the building as construction goes on, posing for pictures as they go. They'll even let you pose in a traditional Mardi Gras costume in order to get some easy laughs on Facebook.

Tours are available seven days a week except on some major holidays. They'll even come get you if you need a ride there. And the company has a Mardi Gras tour that includes a visit to the factory.

Obviously, this lends itself to a video:
