This past weekend was the first weekend of Mardi Gras in Galveston and ohmigoshwas it fun! Seriously, if you live within driving distance from Galveston, join my Krewe next year!
This year's theme was Beer. Yes, very generic. But Del Papa is a major distributor of Bud products and this is their 100th year in business (and they put up A LOT of money for Mardi Gras) so the parade was a salute for them. I didn't get many pictures of the other Krewes but there were some great costumes. The winners were Clydesdale horses, Spuds Mackenzie and some weird play on words costume that I still don't get.
We were Tailgaters. Is it obvious we were the young ones? Mardi Gras is a whole different experience when you are on the float.
Here are a few pictures:
