Vintage Photo Friday

There are two big celebrations this weekend in Los Angeles:  Mardi Gras at the Original Farmers Market and Chinese New Year in China Town, Downtown.

I'll be at the Mardi Gras at the Market on Sunday, late afternoon.  This is the 24th year the celebration has been held.  It's turned into quite a party.  There's live music, special food from New Orleans, people are all dressed up in fantastic costumes and the VooDoo beer is flowing!

I wish I had a chance to catch the grand parade for New Year in China Town!  It's usually really fun.
Bon Ton Roulet and Gung Hay Fat Choy, y'all!
