It's Mardi Gras!!!!


The kitty girls from Jacqueline's Cat House are hosting the Mardi Gras celebration and we are all invited to join in.  Our town had a Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday parade this past Sunday with colorful floats and costumes galore. The parade theme this year was "Royal Wedding" so there were outrageous bridesmaids everywhere you looked.  Big amazing fun hats were also "in"!  The attendees did not let a bit of rain dampen their enthusiasm.

Keeping that theme in mind, we joined in and went the same route.  May we present King Two Spot and Queen Ivy  officiating over the Mardi Gras festivities at Wildcat Woods!  We will be celebrating well into the night with great Cajun and Creole food, especially King Cake,  Madi Gras Mambo music and lots of partaying! We joined in on Our World Tuesday too.

Our own Queen Ivy.






Be sure to try this special King Cake!  And then get out your dancing shoes for the Mambo!

We're celebrating Fat Tuesday in Breckenridge, CO, too. However, I think the people in our parade might have to dress a bit more warmly! People will wear Mardi Gras beads while skiing.

Marg said...

What a great Mardi Gras post. Love all the pictures. Also the parade looks like it was fun. So far I have not had a problem with the word verification on Blogger. It isn't that bad. Take care and have a great day.
