I don't know why New Orleans bothers giving their events titles anymore. Just say "Hey, it's Tuesday, let's have a parade." There was a point when I got annoyed with all of the random parades popping up to block traffic at the precise moment I needed to be somewhere. I learned a while ago that if you can't beat 'em, invite friends over, dig into the costume closet, and hit the streets to join 'em. This Midsummer Mardi Gras parade goes right by my house, so join 'em is what I did.
