Basile Mardi Gras Street Dance, Feb. 20, 2007

These photos were taken about 3 p.m. when the Basile Mardi Gras joined community members for a street dance in downtown Basile. That's Capitaine Potic Rider in the first row holding the chicken. Danny Shuff on accordion with Brandon Moreau on fiddle were two of the musicians. If you look at the close-up of the screen mask, you can see how the eyes, nose, and mouth help to disguise the face of the Mardi Gras. The facial features on the mask are not aligned with the facial features of the Mardi Gras behind the mask.
