Mardi Gras Parades (Part 5)

The Titans' Parade had a theme of Big Guys (and Gals), both good and bad.

King & Queen of the Titans

The Krewe of The Titans Float

Nessie? Is that you?

Red Ridinghood

Ya gotta love the alternate Cajun spelling!

Elvis, The King!

Elvis' float was all Jailhouse Rockin'

Captain Hook

The Cap'n would not have liked Cajun Country. Too many gators.

Captain Hook Float was manned by Pirates. Aaargh!

I think this was a Kraken.

No question as to who this bad boy was: Satan himself.

Of course, in Cajun/Creole lore there's one person to be feared more than Satan:

Marie Leveau

When the Titan's Parade ended, we returned to our campground, gathered around the TV and watched the Super Bowl. Most were cheering on the San Francisco 49ers in loyalty to one couple who's son-in-law is the offensive coordinator. I was rooting for the Ravens because of Ray Rice and the idea that should they win, it would just rub it into the Patriots that much more. It was a close call.

(PS We all agreed that the Paul Harvey narrated God Made A Farmer commercial was the best. The M & M commercial (I will do anything...) was the funniest.)
