Well, at long last and after much too doo including a day of set up in nonstop rain, the 24th annual Ojai Mardi Gras celebration arrived last Saturday March 1st then continued on with family fun at the Fais Do Do the following day. These photos are of the early evening on Saturday as revelers arrived and looked about then on into the night as we all enjoyed an evening of perfect weather, great music, fun dancing and lots of friend making. The background was filled with the fun decorations we helped make and the town streamed in by the hundreds. It was the masquerade party I’ve always wanted to go to. We got in for free because of our volunteer participation but the $20-25 ticket price and themed concessions were all reasonable and for a good cause. Come back for more pictures of the next day’s family festivities and riding around in the big fish art car throwing beads to Ojai. Chalk this up to one of our most memorable Mardi Gras’ ever!
