Because It’s Carnival Time

Twelfth Night kicked off with Joan of Arc

Krewe de Jeanne D'Arc parade

 and a streetcar full of funny fellows.

Phunny Phorty Phellows 2011

Parades start this weekend, king cake orders are being taken, costumes are being pulled from closets and attics while Indians all over town are putting the finishing touches on their new suits so they can get their fee-na-nay on. 

 

(pictured are Chief of Chiefs Tootie Montana, RIP;  Big Chief Bo Dollis of the Wild Magnolias and a depiction of the Wild Tchoupitoulas, led by Big Chief Jolly, Mr. George Landry)

Get your complete parade schedule here courtesy of NOLA.com and come on down to the Mardi Gras … it’s fun, it’s safe and it’s a whole lot more  than boobs and beads on Bourbon St.

No really.
