Parade madness

Every month on the first of the month, a couple hundred City Daily Photo bloggers take part in Theme Day. The theme this month is "What is your city known for?" Unfortunately, the first of the month snug up on me too fast and I missed it.

Better late than never -- New Orleans, jazz, exciting food, art, festivals.... but probably more than anything New Orleas is known for the Mardi Gras. This from the Krewe of Endymion last night at they toss throws throughout Mid City. It was a show to remember. We were near Carrollton and Bienville streets.

How I miss the Mardi Gras season! We only saw Endymion once, but it was great! I like that you show the true spirit of Mardi Gras, with kids and families enjoying the spectacle. We will have to wait a couple more years to take our son, when he'll be old enough to yell' "Throw me something, mister!"
