Our fave Mardi Gras pix from the weekend

Eighteen Mardi Gras parades rolled in the New Orleans area over the weekend, including the Krewe of Barkus (dog parade), Carrollton, Oshun, Chewbaccus (scifi), ‘tit Rex (miniature) and King Arthur.

So many things to do, so little time. If you didn’t make it to all the parades, we made a Storify post of our fave parade pictures to catch you up.
