Mardi Gras Parades
It doesn't take long to get used to Mardi Gras. Just a great time to celebrate life, friends and family. The parades are great because it is a chance to see all of the high school and college bands perform. HBCUs are very prominent in the mix. This year we saw bands from Southern University, Talladega College, Alcorn State University and Mississippi Valley State University. They are always crowd favorites.
And of course a highlight is catching all the beads and the like. Of course it helps when you get to sit in the Mayor's box (these two are going to be spoiled!)
