Feather Up


We were in our normal Sunday before Mardi Gras place on Magazine Street, yesterday for the Toth Parade.  This year, though, they changed where the parades lined up,so three different parades rolled passed us including Toth and Mid City.

This guy, Wild Man, makes a short appearance at the corner by us every year and then disappears back into the crowd. From the looks of his costumes, he must belongto one of the Mardi Gras Indian Krewes.

I stopped and read your blog and looked at the photograph. I just wanted you to know. That is one impressive garment.

Great photos I wish we were there to celebrate Mardi Gras. We sure had a great time on our last visit.
