|Mardi Gras beads for runners!|
While I'm sure at least a few readers were hoping for scandalous photos, the holiday is much more family-oriented in Florida than it is in New Orleans. (Read: No flashing for beads. Sorry readers.)
What Pensacola (thankfully) lacks in public nudity, it makes up for in parades and parties. Carnival begins on January 6th (Epiphany) and lasts through Fat Tuesday (aka Mardi Gras).
On the Gulf Coast that means lots of weekend parades, beads, and moon pies. (Then again, parades, beads, and moon pies are year-round staples here. There are just more of them right now.)
|It's a Christmas parade, can't you tell?|
Speaking of running and beads...
Who's running Rock 'n' Roll New Orleans next month?
If there is interest, I'd like to organize a blogger meetup in the Crescent City.
If you'll be there, leave a note in the comments, send me an email, or message me on Facebook.
