Out in public!

You know how when you were a kid adults would act scandalized to think you might dress or behave a certain way when out in public?

Well, that's what Southern Decadence is all about!

This weekend-long festival has been taking place  over Labor Day weekend in New Orleans for 46 years. It's said that even during Hurricane Katrina, the parade took place, attended by French Quarter hold-outs before evacuation.

Sunday was the parade that culminates the celebration. Friends and I went down to the Quarter to join in.

As might be expected, there were several organizations and people who didn't get the joke, didn't enjoy the spectacle. In face, certain religious figures even blamed Southern Decadence for the hurricanes that have hit the city over the years.  

Party poopers. But no matter. The spirit of fun and revelry will always prevail.

If you can imagine it, there was a costume for it.

You're not going out in public like that, are you?
