Weekend Parade Outlook, Pics from Krewe du Vieux

Last Saturday night (January 19), the Krewe du Vieux rang in the Mardi Gras season, rolling through the French Quarter and the Marigny in all its gaudy grandeur. Photographer Kim Welsh caught the salacious spectacle. Check out her shots from the (in)appropriately themed Krewe du Vieux Comes Early below.

This weekend 17 parades will roll throughout the New Orleans metropolitan area. Here’s a quick look at the schedule:
