Krewe du Vieux and Krewe Delusion: Photo Slideshow (NSFW)

This past Saturday, February 19, the 2011 Mardi Gras season kicked into high gear with the first “official” Orleans Parish parade, Krewe du Vieux, followed by its young relative, Krewe Delusion (read February’s Backtalk interview, or this February 1995 interview for some Krewe du Vieux back-story). All photos below from Saturday night’s parades were taken by Kim Welsh.
