Mardi Gras

Monday, April 11, 2011
Back in March we attended the Mardi Gras festivities at our new town.  Instead of Mardi Gras we should call it Mardi Growl as it was a family dog parade instead of the bacchanalian images that would normally come into mind.


It was the first time they put on this event and I would say it was a great success.  They had adequate facilities on site like port-a-potties and food vendors.  Where they came up short with was organization.  When the dogs finally went on parade it was mob rather than a parade.  In the future I think they should release the dogs in groups to lengthen the parade and allow us to see more dogs.


The kids really enjoyed this.  The weather was ok and seeing all types of dogs was fun.  Alyce got to make a Mardi Gras mask and Luke listened to some music.


It was a short, didn't cost us anything, and we had fun.  All the makings of good time.
