Photos of Times-Picayune floats at Mardi Gras

The Times-Picayune had four floats at Mardi Gras 2013 in New Orleans, and the media organization didn’t produce any of them. The floats were satirical and poked fun at The T-P’s move to a three-day-a-week print paper. logo_nola_times_picayune We were fascinated by the floats. We come from a newspaper background, but the only way our papers would have been represented in a parade is if the paper made the float. We are aware of four Times-Picayune floats this year: Krewe du Vieux, Krewe d’Etat, Chaos and Muses.

Pictures are below:

  1. Wonderful! As the former society photographer for the T-P, I particularly enjoy seeing Chaos’s take on it and how the upper class spoofed itself with the Society Page graphic. Wonderful stuff. Thanks for your work, Carlie.

  2. certainly like your web site but you have tto check the spelling on several of your posts.
    Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome
    to inform the reality on the other hand I will definitely come again again.
