Last Saturday we went to watch Mardi Gras 2015 Parade. With more than 10,000 participants, about 150 floats and thousands and thousands of spectators, covering around 5 kms, Mardi Gras is indeed a spectacular event to watch out for.
Hyde park was the starting point of the parade this year. The start time being 7:00 pm, we reached the park by 4:30, just to find a proper place (which later on we found wasn’t enough) The participants looked absolutely fabulous in their colorful and rather interesting costumes. After shooting them for a while we decided to make our way to the street and find a place to watch the parade.
But alas!! we weren’t lucky that day. Across the span of 5km, not a place was left that remained unoccupied.
I did try to sneak in between towering human wall, but, in vain. That’s when I realized, that there are other ways of watching the parade.
Climb upon the boyfriend’s shoulders.
It would have been an excellent idea if my husband was a foot taller and had upper body strength to carry my weight.
Climb upon the Road Signs
Naah, I don’t think the police is going to like it!!
Climb on nearby trees
Now this lovey-dovey couple really did find a sweet spot.
That’s a perfect spot too!! If only I could climb without breaking my teeth.
Rent a balcony-view flat
These are the days when I really wish I lived in one of these swanky balcony view flats.
Climb a pole
This sweet grandfather is quite strong, the way he climbed the pole made my jaw touch my toes.
So next time you wanna watch a parade, you know what you got to do 😉
You are welcome 😛
