Burlington Mardi Gras 2011
With winter hopefully ending soon, one of the most anticipated activities in this cold and often gloomy North East city is the annual Mardi Gras parade. It may be a few (or more) notches down on the craziness scale compared to the original Mardi Gras down south, but it is far more family friendly. It’s great to see the colorful display of characters in the parade, not to mention the fun gathering of the Vermont populace in a party mode.
At 45 degrees F, it is definitely a little more bearable to hang out to watch the entire parade this year. Of course I’ll be happy to have weather beyond freezing point nowadays.
