Mardi Gras 2007
Brit, Ellen and Mary Jo
The Market was packed both Saturday and Sunday. I met up with Brit and Mary Jo on Saturday. We had lunch and listened to The Big Boys Dixieland-style band in the East Patio. Later, we moseyed on down to the West Patio where T-Lou and his Super Hot Zydeco Band were entertaining the crowds. We ended up doing a little shopping in the FM and the Grove and called it a day. The crowds really were overwhelming. Of course, Larry was there, photographing everything ALLLLL day!

I'm particularly fond of the Zydeco GUMBY Ya-Ya Beads
Mardi Gras Revelers
It was unbelievably hot this past weekend! 91 degrees at the Original Farmers Market on Saturday! Phew! It's usually cloudy and cool and even rainy during M.G. Oh well...it was fun anyway, even though the heat made the crowds slightly more dense.The Bird Lady of Mardi Gras
San Fernando Valley Banjo Band
On Sunday, Larry and I got to the FM around 1-ish. We watched the San Fernando Valley Banjo Band, followed Eddie Baytos and the Nervis Bros. while they marched and seranaded various tables, and then ended up on the West Patio to see Lisa Haley and her Zydekats. Skip Edwards was playing accordion with Lisa's band and Skip's a BIG DEAL...they were fantastic.

Again, I left early for some quiet. Larry didn't get home until after 9pm! It seems that I missed most of my friends on Sunday: Christine and Michael, Robbie, Josefina, Gus, Miss Pat, Natalie, etc. Sorry, kids....next year, we'll have to arrange a meeting time and place.
