Friday Night Mardi Gras gallery 1 | Galveston

February 17-18, 2012 | Mardi Gras | Galveston

Mardi Gras in Galveston got off to a timid start as a result of the stormy weather but for those of us that made it out there for the celebration; it was an evening of fun and revelry. The Danny Weber Memorial Fire Truck Parade started things off with sirens blaring and firemen throwing beads. Next up was the All Krewe Parade hosted by Krewe Babalu.  Starting at the Galveston Railroad Museum, this parade of colorfully decorated floats and booming music made its way through the downtown Galveston area. The culmination of the parade was when each of the two Krewe Babalu floats stopped in front of the Krewe’s balcony party. The air was filled with beads flying both to and from the float and balcony.  Rain or no rain, this party was on.  All the while, bands providing live entertainment kept the spectators gathered around the Budweiser stage; the Josh Abbott Band closed down Friday night.

Saturday, brought more stormy weather and earlier in the day it was touch and go for the Z Krewe walking processional; fortunately for all the spirit of Mardi Gras won. Krewe members lined up for the traditional stroll through downtown Galveston and by the time the parade hit the Strand thousands of parade watchers were lined up along both sides of the street. 

Leading this Z Krewe tradition were the Philadelphia Mummers a wonderful treat for parade watchers and participants alike. The Mummers respectfully parted the way to allow the Z Krewe royalty to pull up underneath the Z Krewe balcony party. With a toast of the bubbly, this year’s King Zanie XVIII, Damien Treshman and Queen Zanie XVIII, Carroll Pfeiffer-Cobb acknowledged their court and wished all revelers a happy Mardi Gras.
  
As the day went out the weather cooperated and thousands of people came to enjoy the grand Knights of Momus Parade. Starting along the seawall, traveling to the downtown Strand area, this parade is the longest parade in the Galveston Mardi Gras; it is a bead throwing marathon. Live entertainment included the Mambo Jazz Kings and Canvas Waiting.

Tune into Talk of the Bay and enjoy the photos.
