NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Among the million or so visitors expected in our fine city for Mardi Gras are at least a couple of celebrities partaking in all the fun.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted a picture to his Facebook page Thursday night of Zuckerberg, his wife and his baby along the St. Charles route.

The post simply said, “Mardi Gras in New Orleans.”

That’s a few hours after Zuckerberg stopped in Baton Rouge for some barbecue.¬†Also Thursday night, Brigette, a former News with a Twist producer, spotted “Kirk” from “The Gilmore Girls.”

Of course, she snapped a picture.
