Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras 2012 at Louisiana

2012 Mardi Gras was Rishab’s 3rd Mardi Gras in Lousisiana. Although for us it was no more than a fun filled picnic, For Rishab it was eagerly awaited and very exciting event as he gets lot of toys for screaming at the floats.
We attended 2 parades in Mandeville and this the last one at Metairie on 21st. We went 2 hours early to safeguard our space (Deepak was the first one to go and reserve it for all of us). We played with the football while kids played around. This was a picture taken while kids were waiting for the parades.

We did not attend too many parades this year but attended just enough to feel good about the season.
 
Rishab got many swords and other toys along with lots of beads.

Fact – Mardi Gras means Fat Tuesday in french, Last day of the mardi gras is always a Tuesday.

As you can see after Mardi Gras parades, lot of thorws and trash fill the roads. Although road looks like this, Everything is cleaned up in a few hours and city is normal as usual the very next daye

St. Patricks day @ Metairie

Centuries back lot of Irish people immigrated to America, their culture is celebrated on St. Patricks day. We went a few hours early and had a lot of time to spend with people around. Rishab spent his time going around and hanging along with a few new friends.

This is what he does... Look at new friends closely.

All types of vegitables and fruits are thrown from the floats. Vegitable vary from lemons to cabbages. Throws also include beads and toys similar to Mardi gras.
