View from a Float

My view of the Avenue Pub from our Mardi Gras float

New Orleans Mardi Gras

This year was the very first time that I’ve ridden on the New Orleans Mardi Gras Uptown parade route. We had such a good time, it definitely won’t be the last.

On Saturday, the Krewe of Choctaw followed the Krewe of Pontchartrain through Uptown, down St. Charles and into the CBD. Time (and beads) flew by in the blink of an eye. Normally, I’m one to photograph everything. Everything.

But we were so busy throwing that I managed to only get a couple of shots as we rolled. The most popular item I had seemed to be the Saints flags…and bless the person who traded me an Amber for one ๐Ÿ™‚

If you’ve never seen a parade from a float, now’s the time to consider which krewe you want to join for 2014. Trust me, you’ll love it.
