This weekend was my first time at a Mardi Gras parade! I was expecting lots of half naked and proud LGTB and my expectations were more than filled. It was a very neat parade, my favourite part was probably Dykes on Bikes. Very cool! The streets were packed and I actually wait for over two hours before the parade started to make sure that I had a good spot. I watched most of the parade however near the end it was so tiring trying to keep my good spot and looking around people (I'm not tall you know!) that I left early. Overall it was a great experience and I definitely recommend it!
