C'est Levee!

Tonight is the first parade, Krewe du Vieux. It's a smaller krewe and only one of two that officially marches through the French Quarter. (I use the word officially because many groups during Mardi Gras march through the Quarter even though they aren't supoosed to.)

This year's theme is "C'est Levee" which promises many sight gags and costumes that will savage the government and press response to our late summer weather event in raunchy fashion. One of my brothers and my sister-in-law are marching in the parade as well as a friend from work.

I am meeting another brother and sister-in-law before the parade for dinner. Then we are going to the home of some friends to watch the parade with a big group. I will be glad for a place to huddle inside periodically because it's going to be windy and cold! Instead of a hat, I am wearing a wig to keep my head warm.
