2001 Mardi Gras Pictures

Mamou, February 27, 2001

The Mamou Mardi Gras Courir continues to attract more attention from the news media than any other run. The media gather along with a lot of other onlookers for the first stop of the day in a vacant lot next to the Piggly Wiggly Grocery Store on the outskirts of Mamou.

Should viewers of the 6 o'clock news take every word spoken by a Mardi Gras covered in straw and hidden behind a bizarre mask as the straight-forward truth? Find out tonight on Channel 7.

As the other pictures on this page illustrate, the morning began foggy. After leaving the American Legion Hall, the Mardi Gras headed down 6th Street past Fred's Lounge and then east on  Poinciana Avenue  toward the first stop. The music wagon at the head of the courir is shown in the bottom photo.
