Default Mardi Gras in Manitou Springs, PHOTO TOUR

Here are pix from today's Mardi Gras parade in Manitou Springs. Before the parade there was Mumbo Jumbo Gumbo cookoff with many local eateries and amateur cooks offering samples of gumbo for tastings.


Before the parade, their was music and a local man dancing up a storm; everyone loved him.



Start of the Parade



Carnivale!






















The Pikes Peak "Derby Dames" roll with the parade. Flat track roller derby bouts are held at the Colorado Springs City Auditorium.










































David Bowie?















It's About The Beer!



Trolling for Donuts

The annual Mardi Gras / Mumbo Jumbo Gumbo Cookoff / Parade is set for 09 Feb 2013.

Lots of fun and lots of good eats. One buys tickets and redeems them for food samples of their choice. If this food doesn't appeal, Manitou is full of great eateries. Go early, parking is tight.

Keep Manitou Weird
