Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler- Parade Post

Happy Mardi Gras, y'all! Today is Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras day! Even though we were in New Orleans last Thursday, we still got to see 3 parades (and one in Baton Rouge on Saturday!).

As many times as we've been to New Orleans, this was our first time seeing a Mardi Gras parade. We have seen a St. Patrick's Day parade!

Let me tell you, it was fun! The parades rolled one after another, but we left our spot after the second to have dinner at Emerils, then we still got to see the third parade in another spot! Here are some of my favorite pics of the night!

These Flambeaux led the way for the parades.

This was taken after the first parade! We were so loaded down with beads by time it was over!

Notice my bad is stuffed with cups!

We had a great time. Keep in mind that the krewes that roll on Thursday are a lot smaller than some of the ones that roll on the rest of the weekend (and today!). Clinton and I both agreed that we are definitely going back to do it again!
