Happy Presidents Day! I trust you had a fabulous weekend with your favorite Valentine. If you forgot I hope you had a great backup plan!
This weekend was jammed packed with so much going on in Huntsville it was difficult to make a decision on where to go and what to do. The air was filled with music, love and festivities. In the middle of all the weekend activities, Huntsville was celebrating with its second Annual Mardi Gras parade. Thousands lined the streets of downtown waiting their chance to catch the traditional golden prize of beads thrown in the designated “throw zone”! For that couple of hours the city had transformed itself into a mini New Orleans with over 50 Krewes participating in the parade.
While Huntsville is no match for the celebrations in Mobile and New Orleans, it is only in its second year and the organizers have done well to make it worth the effort for all involved. Participating Krewes did their best to entertain the crowds and present a Mardi Gras atmosphere! The crowd favorite (well at least mine) may just have been The Cotton Candies, a self proclaimed all female “marching Krewe with a dancing problem!” The all pink outfits and their choreographed dance moves captivated the crowds as they slid effortlessly through the streets displaying their colorful outfits and their Big smiles!
All in all it was a very special day full of frivolity. For all of us that will not make the trek to New Orleans, Huntsville’s parade and the organizers did all they could to give us a little taste of jumbalaya and a chance to go home with a chest covered in beads!
