Mardi Gras Mambo {House Float: Dino Gras on the Avenue ~ St. Charles Avenue}

 Dinosaurs are not my thing, but this grand mansion on St. Charles Avenue has a wonderful display of these prehistoric creatures. The Wedding Cake house as it is known because of the intricate details is the perfect backdrop for the display.

How many types can you name?

Have you made your trip down St. Charles Avenue yet? It is a must-see. Stat!

Dino Gras, y'all!


  1. This was my son's favorite! It truly is amazing. and because of him, I can not only name them all but give you very specific details about them. ha!

  2. Good evening, Ron! I'm with you about the dinosaurs, but that house is gorgeous! I really wish that I could have gone to NOLA to see those house floats in person, but it didn't happen. Have a great evening! Cheers! xoxo

  3. I have a question for you Ron. Didn't you have decorated silhouettes along your fence earlier in the season? Now they are gone and you have a jester in the background. Just wondering.

    1. Mary,
      They have not been stolen. I placed two of them on the side fence. They blocked the front yard too much.

  4. Lol, those are funny. I like their accessories.

  5. HaHaHa..Love it!! They just keep getting better..ENjoy your weekend..Happy Valentines Day
