It’s Carnival Time, y’all!


Uptown Mardi Gras parades roll to “start” the season tonight, and there are several parades scheduled for the first weekend of Carnival.


It’s that time of year when we place garbage cans in the front of the house to mark our places. It’s also that time of year when we see friends and acquaintances that we have not seen in a year. The best way to keep in touch with some is to have a house along the parade route--- free restroom/free booze.


I love the Mardi Gras season, and I hope the weather cooperates with us this year.

  1. Oh what fun! I hope that the weather behaves;)

  2. The rain storm cleared through Fairhope around 7am and now we have sunny skies. It's on top of you now, but the sun (and clear starry night) will soon follow!
    Catch some Moon Pies!

  3. Amazing that you have front row seats...the BEST!!!

  4. How exciting! A daughter will have an hour at the airport there on Monday morning, but that is about as close as any of us will be to Carnival Season. I know it will be a great time for you and all your friends.

  5. I know you are so excited--this is your element! Have fun tonight and enjoy the Mardi Gras season! Have a great day! xoxo

  6. How fun! I've never been to a Mardi Gras celebration before. Take lots of pics to share!

  7. OMGosh- It is just amazing for us to see that, Ron!!!! xo Diana

  8. So much fun! I really miss those "good times". Have a drink for me, ok?


  9. The time of year when you place garbage cans out front to mark your place -- and someone moves them to steal your place!
