Interesting Parades

Back home, in my elementary years, I remember that we had a nice parades in the city. Most kids love to catch some freebies and candies ..... well, I remember those days that I followed the floats begging for freebies. But, as the years passed and new city officials govern the city, it seems that parades are not as exciting as before. But, when I saw the pictures of the two consecutive city fiestas, I was amazed that parades came back to life. Floats are spectacular!When I arrived in Mississippi, Mardi Gras Parades are big thing! It's like being a child once again. The fun part... everyone is begging for beads and freebies. Mardi Gras Parades are fun to watch! A reason that hubby and I keep on coming back to Mississippi. Here is the "atmosphere" of the streets before the parade starts.I took this picture at the deck of the building owned by a cousin in D'Iberville, Mississippi. Most of the streets in this city are closed. I catch some beads for friends back home. I would do it over and over again.
