Just for fun, I've taken some of the photos from last Sunday and put them together into a video, with a soundtrack from Kevin MacLeod.

I've heard this Mardi Gras was unusually rowdy since it coincided with spring break and a lot of college kids came down to party. I think that shows as the day progresses.
I notice the photo quality degrades when uploaded to You Tube, and I'm obviously doing something wrong with the embed since it's bleeding into the right margin. Sigh. Anyway, here it is:
