Well, it's that time of year again. Houses, trees, tourists. and locals alike will be adorned in colorful plastic jewlery. The beads, the balls, the beer, the masks, the parades! These are all things we revel in during the Carnival season.  This Saturday, January23rd, will be the first parade of the season, Krewe du Vieux. This much anticipated, satirical, XXX, French quarter parade is the one to kick off the next few weeks of debauchery. (Adult supervision recommended.)
