Mardi Gras [SIV8] 

When Vermonters get tired of the long, never-ending winter, the annual Mardi Gras parade is a perfect way to shake loose those winter blues.  Colorful floats, crazy costumes, beads whizzing through the air and public alcohol consumption - what could be more fun? And even better, the proceeds benefit The Women's Rape Crisis Center so all those beads you buy go to a good cause. A great time was had by all, thanks Magic Hat for this great annual event! I have to hand it to Alan Newman, not many people would have the guts to dress up in a purple feather costume and personally welcome the entire city to the Mardi Gras parade.

Fabulous peppy music by Pretty and Nice, "Lazy, Lazy Bumblebee" and "Fortress."
