Everywhere else it's just another Tuesday


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!

I've found that many of the bloggers with whom I once corresponded have gone offline. So glad to see you're not one of them. Also, this sounds like a delightful experience. I have never been to New Orleans, and it's very much on my list.

If Mardi gras is celebration period before fasting season, why people dress in these horrible and creepy costumes? The costumes can be of some other appealing themes too.
