Mardi Gras Update from Danforth Diamond Team! March 16, 2011

Posted by Jill Renee in : Jewelry , trackback

Our time in New Orleans has been a blast so far! On Sunday we attended three parades, a barbeque, and a good ‘ol New Orleans style crayfish boil.  The parades are unlike anything I have ever seen!  It is a great tradition and so nice to see the community coming together with pride for the city of New Orleans. We have attended the parades held by the Krewe of Thoth, the Krewe of Endymion, and the Krewe Bacchus.  The Krewe of Thoth was my favorite! Thoth is known for it’s generosity and creativity.  They host very child friendly parade and their parade route passes the Children’s Hospital, a home for the blind, and a retirement community.  The theme was “Thoth Goes to College” and each float was themed around a different major.  The crowds were so excited as the cheered for the passing floats!  The crayfish boil was something very new to me as well.  It is a whole lot of work for a small amount of meat but well worth it! The cajun spices were the perfect addition to the boil! Today we are taking it easy and resting up for the big day!
