Passing excitement

This is the essence of the Mardi Gras mystique. The excitement that passes from the float rider to the parade fan through a pair of beads, a plush toy, a doubloon, what have you.

This is from the Toth parade this past Mardi Gras. By the way, notice the rose in the pocket of the young lady. You have to toggle down a couple post to get the story on that.

I have never been to mardi gras in NO, but now that I live so close, there's no excuse not to go!

I think I still have some of the beads from Mardi Gras 1991-1996.
