thought struck me. I have no idea if Mardi Gras parades will roll in 2022 or even if I will be able to go out to photograph them.
There are a couple of things that I know.
The mayor isn’t cancelling Mardi Gras, even if she could. Mardi Gras is tied to two more Catholic holidays, the coming of the wisemen and Ash Wednesday. If she cancels anything, it will be the parades that could become a super spreader.
A test parade walked for Halloween called the Krewe of Boo. This should be the weekend to learn if there is an uptick of CoVid-19 infections. With luck, there won’t be.
The city is rightfully gun shy, since the last Mardi Gras parades was a super spreader event and New Orleans was blamed for infecting the country. The former president claims that he knew that the virus was virulent but he forgot to tell us.
So, I’m a little impatient. I feel like posting Mardi Gras pictures now. Right now.
This investigating dog was part of the Krewe of Barkus. That’s right. A Mardi Gras parade for dogs. A dog parade. There’s a lot of barking and investigations and smelling going on. Most dogs are friendly and seem to like being photographed.
Like this one.
