Every year for two consecutive weekends, King Gambrinus host a grand Mardi Gras Party for 300,000 of his closest friends with about 650,000 throws just on the first weekend alone.
First Saturday begins with the noontime Mystic Krewe of Aquarius Kick Off Parade followed later after sunset by the Krewe of Gambrinus Parade. By the time Mardi Gras season is over, 3 million beads will be thrown to the cheering spectators in Galveston Island.
Mardi Gras Blog Party
This weekend, we will have our very own cyberspace Mardi Gras. With a bit of imagination and creativity, fun and merrymaking will be right at our doorsteps.
So, let’s turn on the Mardi Gras music, dance and sing to its beat, indulge on our favorite food and drink in moderation, wear a festive mask and a few colorful beads because our blog party is about to begin.
First, let’s high five.
Now time to raise our arms and hands so we can catch lots and lots of beads.
In our blog Mardi Gras, a shower of beads comes like pouring rain.
Now, time to enjoy some live music.
The sun has just set and our blog party just heating up. Here comes more floats and yes, more beads.
Let’s rock and roll with Elvis.
It feels good to abandon our worries and troubles even for a moment. To have fun and celebrate “us.”
Thank you for celebrating with me on our first Mardi Gras Blog Party. It was more fun because of you. Hope to see you all in next year’s celebration. Have a blessed weekend and an amazing first days of Spring.
