As promised, here’s the video of last week’s official Mardi Gras parade season opener, the Krewe of Oshun. I uncharacteristically stood on the neutral ground side (where the streetcars run, rather than the sidewalk side). Local Who Dat shop, Fleurty Girl, has cute t-shirts declaring your viewing side. To read my blog on the parade and see dozens of photos, click here.
In addition to the floats and marchers I mentioned before, there’s video of Centre Stage School of Dance, Xavier University Golden Girls Pom Squad and local radio station Q 93.3 as well as the promised footage of the incredible Superstar Steppers. Sorry it’s so dark. It helps if you watch it full screen.
