Saint Anthony Ramblers – Mardi Gras

DSCF3126We’ve been here in New Orleans for a few weeks, staying with our friends Glen and Michelle in the Marigny.  There will be many blog posts about this, but I thought we should get today’s photos of Mardi Gras up now.

The day started with the gathering of the St. Anthony Ramblers at Glen and Michelle’s firehouse, then a parade with the Krewe and the Panorama marching band through the neighborhood and the French Quarter.
