If you’re not in New Orleans, how can you possibly celebrate Mardi Gras? Ask the enterprising Cajuns from the Louisiana National Guard who brought Mardi Gras to Iraq…with a few makeshift floats, beads and masks.
A Krewe is an organization that puts on a parade (and/or a ball…in the case of human krewes) for the Carnival season. The Krewe of Barkus was established in New Orleans in 1992 and granted parading status by the city of New Orleans in 1994. Just like the real Mardi Gras festivities, dog parades are presided over by a king and queen!
A dog parade known as “Mardi Paws” takes place in Mandeville, Louisiana (twenty-four miles north of New Orleans) which also elects a canine royalty and anyone can march with their pet for a fee. Dogs walk, ride in baby strollers, grocery carts, or wagons decorated according to the chosen theme. Most dog owners are costumed as well.
Wow…these dogs really know how to party. Great pics!

Just in case you missed it…guys in Cupid costumes can’t be trusted. Do these guys look harmless to you?
Who doesn’t love Antiques Roadshow these days…the thrill of a million dollar find and the agony of a cheap piece of trash grandma left you? That’s good stuff, right there. But what will the popular show be like 541 years from now?
