Louisiana: Country Mardi Gras, Part 1: Throw Me Sumtin' Sha!

The Carencro Mardi Gras Parade was my first for the 2014 season. It was the weekend before the weekend that preceded actual Mardi Gras day.

It was at the Carencro Mardi Gras Parade that I learned that southern Louisianans know how to enjoy a parade.

More to come. In the meantime, look at the photo. Chairs, of course. A tent. A long table. Said table covered with soon-to-be displayed foodstuffs for the inner circle who staked out this spot. You can be pretty sure there's some form of alcohol in the vicinity, as well.

Not to mention the hopeful bead catcher.
