Last night, I took the bus down to the French Quarter to attend the Krewe de Vieux parade. It’s a very bawdy politically satirical parade cometing on local and national politics. According to www.mardigrasparadechedule.com, “The Krewe grew from about 150 drunks stumbling through the French Quarter in search of a bar, to become a relatively well-organized group of about 600 (most of them still drunk), with an actual parade route.”
There were thousands of people in attendance and it was a great, though FREEZING, kick-off to the parade season. If you haven’t already been to the Who Dat? nation, now’s the time!
