It’s Carnival time!!!! Krewe of Oshun and Krewe of Cleopatra got the season going and I’m so sad not to have the time to write about it. A few fun things – the Marie Antoinette-inspired Oui Dats have swelled from last year’s 6-pack in search of a parade to 40-or-so marchers proudly strutting St. Charles. And another cute Krewe debuted – the Amelia Earhawts. Rather than doing a dance, they zoomed around with their arms out like kids playing airplane. You never know what you’re going to see at Mardi Gras.
Apologies for not elaborating on the rich history of these Krewes or the many schools, stilt walkers and horse-riders who leant their talents to entertain us. Click HERE if you’d like some of that information.
