Mardi Gras New Orleans
AIROSMITH found ourselves in New Orlean, just in time for Mardi Gras. We were last here pre-pandemic in 2019. Parades and marches were restricted in 2021, limited in 2022, but back in full this year.
We were once again visiting our gracious hosts, Steff’s cousin Martha and her husband Will. They ferried us to a friends home in the Marigny, just off of Royal Street.
This wasn’t the large commercial parades to be found uptown. This was pure participator celebration. Costumed paraders and homespun floats. It was “Masking Day”. Alcohol flowed almost as much as the fun and merry making. There were people and music everywhere. Nonstop from 8AM until Sunset. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here ya go.
