It kicked off last Saturday on Dauphin Island , Alabama. If you have never been to Dauphin Island you need to check it out. I have enjoyed it all my life, it was a regular party spot during high school.
But, I'm talking about the 2010 Mardi Gras season. It is upon us. Dauphin Island put on two parades last weekend due to a cancellation from the previous week. I didn't see either parade, but that did not matter I could feel the vibes all the way in Downtown Mobile.
The Mystic Fish held it's 18th annual Open House at their float barn. Dogs were on the grill. BBQ, Beer and Bloody Mary's were enjoyed while the production of this years Fish Float got started. A good time was had by all and good progress was made on the float.
With the Fish Parade falling on Valentines Day this years theme will surly be in tune with this "lovers" holiday. As you can see this years float will have huge lips in a permanent pucker. Ready to give and receive many kisses.
These photos will give you a good idea of how the float committee constructs a float. Enjoy and stay tuned for more progress reports.
