Raucus Bacchus

Bacchus goers yell and scream for beads and throws as the float pass by. The Sunday night parade (shown here on Napoleon Ave. in New Olreans) lights up the town as it rolls the Super Parade route -- Napoleon to St. Charles down to Canal Street.

Napoleon is a great spot to catch a parade because of the wide lanes and the extra wide neutral ground (median).

Bravo for this series of wonderful photos. New Orleans is really exceptional.

After 5 days of Carnaval in Mazatlan, I am exhausted! I was tempted to participate in everything, and the traffic snarls after the fireworks and parade were amazing. Fat Tuesday brought out the Baccanalian characteristics of so many people!
