Rain may have been predicted for Mardi Gras, but only threatening clouds passed overhead allowing the sun to play peekaboo. It was a warm day for this earliest in memory Mardi Gras Day – Mardi Gras is determined by Easter’s date. The Krewe of Argus was first in the parade line-up. Unfortunately there was a huge gap in the early part of this parade. You’ll notice a couple of crowd shot with folks passing the time.
