This Fat Tuesday was marked by the annual Mardi Gras Parade led by the Krewe de Kaw banner, and put on by band leader (and one half of Truck Stop Honeymoon) Mike West. Families, spectators and party goers were treated to New Orleans classics like When The Saints Go Marching In. Incredible costumes and delightful music, this parade was just one more example of why Larryville is the best place on earth.
