The Many Faces of the Krewe of Barkus

The Mystic Krewe of Barkus parade rolled through the French Quarter yesterday afternoon.



The parade was attended by dog lovers of all ages...



...and some religions...



...dogs of all sizes...



...some wearing costumes...



...and some not...




...some very tired...



...and even a pirate cat! Pin It

That cat was so sweet! It licked my finger when I petted its nose.

I thought so too!

It is a great parade. All the proceeds go to the local ASPCA.

Are there parades daily during this time? Hourly? Looks like fun...and looks like it was warm!

I haven't had any gumbo yet. It's been too warm! Hope to get some before I leave though. And a fried shrimp po boy too.

There are parades daily for 11 days. It was 80 degrees here yesterday. I am loving the warm weather!
