Fat Tuesday Parade

THE parade to be at is what we all think of when we think of Mardi Gras. Even though it goes on for weeks – what happens on Fat Tuesday is what everyone thinks of.

The Man and I went back to the same place we had stood at when we watched the parade at night. It had good vantage points and not too many people could get in the space – so I was okay with that.

Zulu and Rex were the Krewes that were parading that day.
