NEW ORLEANS MARDI GRAS

"Simon West’s 'Stolen' (a film) is based in New Orleans, the place that hosts a carnival popularly known as Mardi Gras (French for Fat Tuesday).
The citizens take to the city streets in costumes and participate in a frenzy called a parade."

(filmfare.com)
"During Carnival 2011, the production got permission to roll its own float - plus fake traffic, Cage and a bunch of extras
- down part of Canal Street on Fat Tuesday itself and on the Sunday prior."
(nola.com)
"Most portions of the plot unfold with the colourful Mardi Gras parade festivities as a backdrop.
The processions, the masks, the lazy carnival revelry in exotic New Orleans make the film a visual stunner."

(goastreets.com)
There is "a long chase sequence in a Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans."
