* Averted with ''Series'TheBigBangTheory,'' even though the show takes place in Pasadena, home of the annual Tournament of Roses Parade, it was mentioned once, when Raj recounted the time Sheldon got food poisoning from a hotdog vendor. And despite Sheldon and Leonard, judging from the fact that Pasadena City Hall can clearly be seen from their window, living a few blocks from the parade route.

* ''Film/TheNeverendingStory 3: Escape From Fantasia'' takes this to ludicrous levels. At one point, Falcor manages to blend in a Chinese New Year celebration in Chinatown. ''The next day'', all the Fantasians are blending in a crowd celebrating ''Halloween''.

* In ''Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', the League is first assembled in London, in a very wet and foggy ''July'' as a title-card makes clear; and their first assignment takes them to Venice, during Venice's signature festival, Carnival. This, of course, is the exact same holiday as Mardi Gras or Shrovetide -- the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, thus the day on which Catholics overindulge in vices and partying before beginning their Lenten fast. Ash Wednesday is 40 days before Easter, therefore Carnival ''never'' falls in late summer in the northern hemisphere.

It also doesn't take into account that the Venetian Carnival was outlawed in 1797 by the King of Austria, and wasn't celebrated again until ''1979.''

* Subverted, on all of shows, ''Series/NCISNewOrleans''. While it couldn't possibly be Mardi Gras every week (though at least one episode was in fact aired on the actual Fat Tuesday, 2/9/2016), many episodes have either begun or ended with some sort of a celebration. This was actually cited in the BackDoorPilot when Ellie Bishop asks if there's a parade every week. Pride's shrugging response more-or-less confirms this.
