The only item on the calendar for this weekend is the 20th Annual Mardi Gras Festival at the Original Farmers Market! Larry and I have both been attending this celebration for the past 20 years! It is, by far, the BEST Mardi Gras party this side of New Orleans, Louisiana. The music, food, people and decorations are the best! The true spirit of Louisiana is felt throughout the Market. Come on down! Here's the schedule.
I try to knit or crochet a new Mardi Gras hat to wear each year. Below are some of our hats from past years.
The Mardi Party Headband
The Ultimate Crocheted Crown
Granny Goes LaLa
The Mardi Gras Photo King of the Fairfax Delta
