Before memory fades, here are some views of Mardi Gras day, 2017.
Mardi Gras morning started with a gathering at a local residence, followed by a parade through the streets of the Marigny headed to the French Quarter.
Lots of people came out. Several smaller marching parades met one another, merged, or split and diverged. By the time it was at Jackson Square, it had become disorganized. But isn't that the fun of it?
Happy Mardi Gras!
