Last night, the Carnival Krewe of Boo paraded through the French Quarter.
If you haven't seen a real carnival parade, I'm sad for you.
This one had marchers and numerous two-story floats from which the participants threw stuff into the crowd--beads, candy, cops, t-shirts, etc.
Ammunition would have been nice Why don't they throw boxes of .22lr or something? Just wait until I get to be in charge of a Krewe.
Anyway, I got a few pics to turn out.
Back in the staging area, the parade got ready.
Marchers stepping off.

And yes, I caught lots of beads, a cup and a t-shirt, and only spilled my drink once. (Sorry to the kid in the stroller that I spilled it on...I gave her some beads so it was good.)
