Happy Mardi Gras!
It's a cold, wet Mardi Gras here in New Orleans, although we did have some lovely parade days this year, despite Carnival falling so early.
These pictures are from the Krewe of Babylon on Friday night and Tucks on Saturday, and were simply taken with a cell phone, so I'm sorry the quality isn't the best.
Tucks was started by a bunch of Tulane students some decades ago, and has never taken itself too seriously. It's origins also help to explain the toilet theme. That's the King of Tucks, above, on his throne. They have some very original marching groups...
Happy Mardi Gras, everyone!
