Krewe du Vieux 2009
Uncle Sam meets Fannie Mae
Krewe du Vieux is in the bag. Had a lot of fun. KDV and Krewe D'Etat are my favorites because of the bitingly satirical floats. KDV rolls past very fast, though. I guess mules are more reliable than tractors.
Sidney Torres gets KDV'd
Run on the Sperm Bank
Shave the Wetlands
Saw a few friends there. Here's Ray handing tons of cool stickers to Candice.
Maitri the loan shark has some cool beads.
Lots and lots of brass bands. Very cool
The crowd was mostly adults and it's a good thing. Imagine a little kid asking, "Daddy, why is there a giant penis walking down the street?"
The late, great Ashley Morris.
Rest of the Set here.
