Joan of Arc Parade for Epiphany
Today, January 6th, marks the Epiphany, the day the Magi brought gifts to the newborn Jesus. For those of us in New Orleans, it marks the beginning of the Mardi Gras season. We've waited so long for King Cakes, parades, and Mardi Gras parties. Tonight we're going to go down to the French Quarter to participate in the first annual Joan of Arc parade. We never had a good time with the Phorty Phunny Phellows and their street car, so we're hoping this is a better fit. I need a costume though and quick.
