Ok, if you knew the rest of that phase…you’ve been listening to Carnival music way too long.
Well, I’m back from the dead…sorta, kinda. I still have no taste buds to speak of yet. The flu is hell and whomever thought a “hot toddy” was a great idea just loves to drink. That stuff is nasty! LOL
At least I can be among the living now and it’s
right on time because, Carnival time is in full effect right now…
gotta catch me a few parades.
I’ll be doing plenty of carnival posts for a minute.
Since I usually get hits regarding tickets for Mardi Gras Grandstand seating and Endymion,
let me put on here that, Ticketmaster isn’t selling them anymore.
Ya gotta get them from City Hall and they jacked the heck out of the prices!
Grandstand tickets for Mardi Gras day is $50 a person…they dun lost their mind!
St. Aug is in Rex this year and I gotta support my fellas so,
I’ll be on Napoleon Ave to catch Rex…thank you very much.
Just me,the hubby, a box of Popeyes’s chicken, a few drinks and our comfy “carnival chairs”…
don’t know where the kids will be.
My guess is, PurpleKnight will be chaperoning for Aug(he’s going through “marching withdrawals” right now)
and YellowJacket always spend that day with her dad.
He does it big for Mardi Gras. They bring out the big grill spend the entire day grilling, drinking and everything.
After Rex,I may go spot a few Indians this year…haven’t done that in a while.
One thing for sure, if we don’t get any rain…it’s gonna be a great season.
Temp’s been in the 70’s and with weather like that, it’s hard to stay inside.
The crowds will be huge.
OH, for those of you out-of-state who want to see the parades,you can catch them here on the “paradecam.” It’s a camera located at St. Charles and Napoleon and it features LIVE STREAMING of the parades with sound! All the parades(except Endymion) pass this intersection so, you can catch the ones that are rolling this weekend and next. Next weekend, be sure to catch Bacchus as it passes…if you’ve never seen it…it’s a must!
I have to work so, I’ll be watching the parades using the cam today.
Krewe of Pontchartrain rolls at 2 p.m. and Krewe of Pygmalion rolls at 6:45 p.m. (Aug is in Pygmalion…gotta put this up for my “purple knight followers”)
Both parades will be on the parade cam.
Happy Mardi Gras!
