March 5, 2011 – Mardi Gras with Z Krewe | Galveston ~ Mardi Gras Saturday ~ Faces in the Street Gallery

A storm blew through Galveston very early Saturday morning causing havoc for the Mardi Gras Festival, throughout the historical downtown district. However, by the time the gates opened that day everything had been put back together and Mardi Gras came back to life once again.

The first parade of the day was the traditional Z Krewe processional.This walking parade starts at 25th and The Strand, travels down Mechanic, turning on 20th and heads down The Strand Led by the Philadelphia Mummers and the Z Krewe Royal Court this crowd favorite brings thousands of revelers to the street screaming for beads. The parade stops in front of the Trumpet Building where Z Krewe hosts their fun filled Zestival parties each year for Mardi Gras. It is at this point, that Mayor Joe Jaworski proclaims the day to be Z Krewe Day. The King and Queen of the Zanies, then toast their fellow krewe members and thanks the huge crowd for participating in Mardi Gras Galveston. All is good with the world.

Later Saturday evening, the Momus Parade started at 22nd and Seawall. As the floats rounded the corner on to the Seawall you could peer over the edge and see hundreds of thousands of people lining the parade route on both sides. It was an amazing sight and we threw an amazing amount of beads.

Enjoy the highlights of this wonderful day spent with the Zanies on Talk of the Bay and Krewe Babalu during the Momus Parade. We, at Krewe of Wiredin would like to say thanks so much for all the wonderful times and Mardi Gras fun.
