willie mardi gras day 2012

We spent the month of February 2012 back in willie’s hometown of New Orleans. It felt great to bring willie home, especially during the Carnival Season. We were there in the heat of Mardi Gras, with parades floating for nearly the entire three weeks leading up to the big day, Fat Tuesday, on February 21st. If you’ve never been to Mardi Gras in New Orleans, it’s something you need to put on your bucket list. On Mardi Gras day the most fun is had when you get up early, secure a spot…

Just to give you guys a little snippet of what Mardi Gras is like, here’s a clip of willie walking in the Bywater heading to the parade route. Note the crazy wigs and costumes! Willie’s got beads!
