Mardi Gras Crowds

He's my favorite!
She was just too cute!

Her sandwich board says "If its broke FIX IT!!" - there are lots of satirical costumes for Mardi Gras.
These guys are part of an unofficial "walking" parade.

I've actually seen this chopped up caravanette driving round Uptown. Now I understand the colour scheme - purple, green and gold are Mardi Gras colours.
People put their kids on ladders to get better throws. Kids are also affectionately referred to as "bead magnets" as the krewe member tend to throw their best stuff to the kids.

Even houses get dressed up.

She has king cake "babies" tied in her wig - now that's cool!
