2002 Mardi Gras Pictures

Mamou, February 12, 2002

The Mamou Courir de Mardi Gras  headed west of Mamou, stopping in an open field beside rice paddies, as shown at right. Inevitably, as shown in the bottom photos on this page, some of the chicken chasing wound up being moved from the prairie to the rice paddies.

Earlier, the Mardi Gras tried to catch chickens thrown from the roof of a house.  One chicken flew high into the trees, pursuing by a couple of dare-devil Mardi Gras who were willing literally to go out on a limb. They made it back safely to the ground, ready to enjoy some boudin and beer.
