Gayle, Breland, Elaine, and I went to the Endymion Extravaganza at the Superdrome last night; black tie attire; 14,000+ in attendance on the floor; about 30 incredibly beautiful floats; 2000+ riders throwing ? tons of beads, some whose aim was dead on. An experience beyond imagination. Will post more of the evening (and morning!) events, see Gayle's Mardi Gras gallery: http://www.pbase.com/gpc/mardi_gras.

Sounds like a great time you all had, what wonderful photo ops. Now I am going to slap Gary for you. :-)

So, how many beads did you get? And how did you get them? Note to self: smack self for comment. Karen, I'm just envious because it sounds like such a great, fun trip. Good shot!

Much more fun than shoveling snow.

You have really captured the atmosphere in this, Karen. Nicely done.

I already seen the picture from gayle, but I like this one too, its from a different angle. I told her as well, it must have been great to meet up with those you know from Pbase. Sounds like you all had fun.

Great photo, Gayle! Sounds like you had a fun time.
Would love to attend at least once in my lifetime!

I've never been to New Orleans during Mardi Gras time.
That may be a good thing :-) This is a great photo, love the colors!
