Society of Saint Anne Parade, Mardi Gras 2013: 100 Ridiculous Costumes

Is there a greater gathering of masquerade revelers than the annual Society of Saint Anne Parade that takes place in the Faubourg-Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana? We doubt it. Last year on Tuesday, February the 12th, also known as Mardi Gras 2013, I Love Detroit Michigan enjoyed the rare privilege of indulging in what we now recall to be one of the most decadent and ridiculous bacchanalian extravaganzas we’ve ever witnessed. In all of our past Halloweens, we’ve never seen such a high percentage of party-goers in such high-quality costuming, with the dominant theme of the day being: “The less sense it makes, the better“. Have a gander at our 20-minute video just below, peruse our sampling of 57 photographs that follows, and, if ya know how to party, well, get ready to start making your plans for next year, as this year’s Society of Saint Anne Parade begins in approximately 16 hours. ~I♥DM
