|This year's king. Weary lies the head that wears the crown|
Barkus is a real crowd-pleaser, for families and tourists, and, yes, there are many many canine guests in attendance as well as marching. Most of them got along just fine, although there were a few little squabbles.
I rode my bike down to catch the parade, since driving a car to the Quarter is never a good idea.I'm still a little shaky on it, but I'm getting better and better each time I ride.
There was so much to look at, both in the street and on the sidelines, that I was grateful that I came on down.
