New Orleans was the place to be this weekend! Today is the big Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday celebration, but country music was front and center to get the party started this weekend.

Dierks Bentley was also in attendance as the headlining act for the Orpheuscapade Parade. He performed with an 11 piece band a back up dancer, who you might recognize from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills:

Lisa Vanderpump too the stage with Dierks and it looks like they had a great time! Mask, beads and good music! Mardi Gras comes to an end today with a big celebration down in New Orleans, I say we celebrate here in the Hudson Valley too! Happy Fat Tuesday everyone!
