Moving forward to now,
Waiting for the parade to begin:
Here it is in its entire splendor:
They were now ready for Mardi Gras day.
Here is a shot of our set-up:
Notice the homemade port-a-potty in the back of the trailer, a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do!
This man was smoking and BBQing chicken and sausage and playing the best R&B you ever heard Karaoke and all.
The crowds were friendly we never had a minute of trouble. If you have never seen Mardi Gras in New Orleans you are missing a good time.
