Thanks to some wonderful friends who live on parade routes, we had birds'-eye views for two great parades this weekend!
The first, Southdowns, is a sweet little neighborhood parade, held at night. It's very kid-friendly, and there were lots of kids (big ones AND little ones)!
Here are some pictures from that parade:
Friends of the Flambeaux: back in the real old days, before floats were lit, flambeaux (torches) were carried along side for light. Originally, they were these huge kerosene things, but for this parade, most were the 'tiki' torch sort of thing!
Our hostess invites only the FINEST people!
A small part of the huge spread!
Caledonian Society - always a hit in a parade!
Our new rector and his family; their first Mardi Gras!!!
A precious 'bead magnet!'
Miss Thing in all her finery!
And this one bit the dust! Precious!!
Will post Spanish Town Parade photographs tomorrow; that one, not QUITE so kid-friendly!
It's Southdowns Mardi Gras, y'all!
