Fat Tuesday – Mardi Gras in French – splits the city into parade-goers and costumers. Parade-goers go to the Krewe of Zulu and Krewe of Rex parades, with diehards staying for the truck parade. We’re costumers so we spent the day wandering the French Quarter and Marigny taking in all the fun and fabulous ideas people came up with this year.
Last year was so quiet so it was wonderful to see all the colorful silliness and ingenuity on display. There were a lot of Ukraine costumes this year. The best was easily the couple in the first photos. The floral jungle woman is my favorite of the day.
Fat Tuesday ties with the Mardi Gras Indians’ Super Sunday for my favorite day for photos so enjoy the bounty!
