Taken during "Bacchus," this is a picture of the float named "Baby Kong." It was one of my favorite floats in the parade.
This float, "Louisiana Music" was of particular interest to me in the context of the assignment. I believe it was an effective representation of the musical culture of New Orleans and the rest of Louisiana.
Apparently, these parade-goers thought a blow up doll would be an effective method for acquiring more beads. Unfortunately, I did not stick around them long enough to see if they benefited from it.
This LSU inspired throw is just another representation of how local culture makes its way into every part of Mardi Gras.
A quick picture of Bourbon Street before things got too out of hand. Shortly after this picture was taken, the streets were overcome with a huge mass of drunk men, women, and (probably) children.
