Our daughter Jessica and hubby Floyd were at a great Mardis Gras gathering last night. I'd asked her to take pictures of the costume contest, but she wasn't sure she wanted to take her camera! Darn. Those costumes are so beautiful. Here is a sample of the contest, the year I was there.
There were a lot of other costumes too. They paraded around the dance floor and danced. Judges picked out winners for many different classes, and then they were in the parade the next day. I can't get over all the glitz and glammer of these big costumes. There was a Mr & Mrs and there was a long train that they pulled behind them. I wonder how much this all weighed? The weather has been so cold that the kids have not been to any parades this past weekend. Bet they'll go today if their weather is better.
Happy Mardis Gras everyone!
