Mardi Gras 2009 – Aquarius Parade – Galveston

There can only be one ‘first’ parade and the Mystic Krewe of Aquarius continues the tradition of hosting the opening parade on the opening day of Mardi Gras. Johnny Lidstone and his krewe get things rolling early Saturday morning with about 80 units participating in the parade. One of the longer parades; this parade travels about 45 blocks down the seawall. Families line up on both sides of the roade; in fact they camp out, setup BBQ pits and cook all sorts of yummy foods while waiting for the parade to come by. Some of these folks have been coming out to this opening parade for decades; obviously a tradition that even a hurricane cannot stop. Way to go Galveston!!

Listen in to Talk of the Bay as we chat with some of the parade watchers. check out the video...
