I took these pictures on March 12 of 2006.

This is the Irish/Italian parade commemorating St. Patrick's day. Curiously, St. Patrick's day isn't until March 17.

Too cute for words.

Throw me somthing mister!

They throw vegetables in this parade.

Hey, what are we going to do with all these vegetables?.

I know, let's boil some crabs!

Yeah, but I want some beads!

FEMA - Fix Everything My A**

A parade, the pope, and Popeye's chicken - a uniquely Louisiana experience!

The crabs are ready!

The fun is over for today. Now it's back to work.
