It's Mardi Gras Time!
The Waveland Krewe of Nereids held its annual Mardi Gras parade yesterday. For those of you not from the Gulf Coast, Mardi Gras is a BIG DEAL here. The Waveland parade may not be anything like you find in New Orleans, but it did have 80 floats, and it is one of the more family-friendly parades on the coast.
Afterwards, the streets looked like a giant pinata explosion, with colored beads and trash and smashed cups strewn everywhere. They're still cleaning it up as we speak, and by tomorrow it will be just another memory--but one of the happier ones as of late.
