Yesterday was Mardi Gras, the conclusion of the Carnival season. This is the second Mardi Gras I’ve spent in Biloxi. (And Ocean Springs and New Orleans). The parade featured 120 floats and other units and an estimated 85,000 people showed up to watch.
A float in Mardi Gras colors, with people reaching to catch cheap plastic junk.
One of many costumed figures: Guy Fawkes giving the V.
A decorative camel atop one float.
Mardi Gras ninja. Invisible to the naked eye, of course, but captured on a 1/159th-second exposure.
