Bon Temps

If you live down thisaway, you get a couple days off school for Mardi Gras. It’s for practical reasons: all the parades make going anywhere except a parade logistically challenging.

So we go to parades.

Order of Mystic Magnolias down in Fairhope last night.

Mobile had Mardi Gras for a hundred years before New Orleans even heard of it. The first parade in New Orleans was hosted by a krewe from Mobile. Just putting that out there.

  1. Sounds like fun! I guess I never realized where you live until I saw the Fairhope parade picture; my parents live in Robertsdale. Enjoy this week’s festivities!
