The parade is always fun, although the performers just walk along the floats with forced smiles.

The food however is the most over priced food ever. With portions just slightly larger than food and and wine with prices easily much higher. The drinks aren't too strong either and there never seems to be much of a party atmoshpere the weekends I've visited.

Many moons ago I was selected to ride one of the Mardi Gras floats. We reported back stage, and given costumes and masks to wear. The float was loaded with beads and coins to toss at the crowd. It was way cool.

This is the best week ever. Not only did we get the return of the fabulous Amanda Jenkins but we also got a new column by Krista Joy. It's such a great time to be a TPI reader! Keep these excellent articles coming Krista. You and Amanda are my favorite writers! :)
