It’s Mardi Gras

Vodpod videos no longer available.

(Above is a news video about the preparations one Mardi Gras Indian tribe have been making for this big day out of the year.)

I’ve got a busy Mardi Gras day with two appointments, but here are some links to the festivities down south.

WWOZ, the station that promotes New Orleans music. This year, they have a float in at least one parade, but they will also provide video on some of the parades.

The Krewe of Zulu, the world-famous African American krewe. Has photos, schedules of events, and some videos. Zulu may be about to march at this time (7:30 a.m. Central Time).

WWL TV, Channel 4 in New Orleans.

The Mardi Gras Parade Cam, provided by the Times-Picayune newspaper. The cam will pick up major parades like Rex.

That’s all for now; I’ll probably be back in the afternoon. Sorry, but I was just getting started when I had to get my rest. There is a possibility that some parades may be stormed on. Rougher weather is forecast for later in the afternoon.

Let the good times roll.
