If you’ve ever been to Mardi Gras (this is my first!), there’s no way to capture all of the splendor, wonder and chaos of the celebration down here in New Orleans, but I’ll give you a little taste of this morning’s festivities.  Live from the REX parade….

here comes the King...

Rex's King 2012!

The Citadel's marching band

one of the many vibrant floats

"Why the Owl has Big Eyes"

As everyone says down here, “Happy Mardi Gras“!!

À bientôt,

k.
