East Side Mardi Gras Assoc. Ball, 1-29-11 by Sky

Zydeco Crawdaddys at East Side Mardi Gras Ball


I launched a new slide show of photos I took at the East Side Mardi Gras Association Annual Ball to raise money to support their participation in the St Louis Mardi Gras Parade. They put out quite a feed that was included in the $20 admission. The gumbo had big chunks of scallops, sausage, shrimp and crab. The red beans and rice were seasoned just right. Beer, soda, snacks and beads were included. The Zydeco Crawdaddys played authentic Mardi Gras style music and furnished soda can shakers and assorted percussion items for the crowd to play along. See a photo of me playing a chest washboard with a pair of spoons. Sandy Alms brought her photo booth with a huge collection of masks, boas and funny glasses. This is always one of the best parties of the year, right here in Swansea.
