Super Gras 2013

So "Super Gras" is what the media has bestowed upon this little issue of the Super Bowl being held in New Orleans when usually the first weekend of parades would roll. So it was a weekend of parades January 25-27, then the Superbowl on Feb 3, and tomorrow Nyx rolls, and there will be 7 days of parades.

Whooo!  This should be fun times.

Here are some half decent pictures from Krewe de Vieux (which was January 19) and the parades from Friday the 26 and Saturday the 27.

Krewe of Choctaw- thought it was a superhero theme, but it got weird.
