Preparing to party

Mardi Gras

Brothers Jack and Michael Rhodes play while wearing their official Mardi Gras crowns inside their family’s castle float. Come parade day, the float will be filled with children throwing candy to the crowd as part of Michael’s upcoming birthday celebration. 


A styrofoam and papier-mâché model of Okeanos, Greek god of the stream, will be a centerpiece on the Mistick Krewe’s Mardi Gras parade.

B.J. Paris works on her family’s float outside their Belvin Street home. The parade begins at noon Saturday on Belvin Street, and will make its way downtown.
