2004 Mardi Gras Pictures

Mamou Mardi Gras Courir
February 24, 2004

These photos of the Mamou Mardi Gras Courir were taken at about noon. In the right column, a Mardi Gras is shown dancing on his horse and preparing to do a flip in a ditch. Other Mardi Gras are shown sitting in a field along a rice levee at a boudin stop. Chicken chasing in Mamou often means also chasing one of the co-capitaines on horseback who throws the chicken as the Mardi Gras run after him.
