It was such a fun evening here at the Basement Club for Mardi Gras. In Germany, we call this time Fastnacht or Fasching. We had some fabulous costumes and even winners.
The traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and gold were not chosen arbitrarily. Rex, the King of Carnival, selected this scheme in 1892, declaring purple for justice, green for faith and gold for power.
If you never been to the Mardi Gras Parade you really should visit this place. It has a 24/7 parade and you can ride the floats.
