Barkus

Mardi Gras 2011 is in full swing, but so far the only parade I’ve attended has been Barkus. The weather and my work schedule has kinda been in the way with parades, but I did complete Warrior Dash yesterday morning(DON’T WORRY – Huge follow up post on Warrior Dash next week).

So here was last weekend’s NOadventure – the quaint Barkus parade. Barkus is a lovely little event where queers, families, gutter punks, old ladies, and dogs join forces in daytime revelry.

We started the day with a muffaletta and a beer while sitting on the sidewalk in Jackson Square.

Parades are gay(inherently). This year’s theme was Broadway. Check out Miss Saigon below.

Behold King Barkus!

There were some pretty good brass bands and musicians marching in the parade. This kid was adorable as a drum major.

I’ve totally seen this old dude on the right dancing “Down in the Treme.”

Now for the dogs. Pretty good costumes for well-behaved animals that don’t understand the purpose of this event.

South Bark was all pugs. Can’t see it in the photo, but they had a black pug dressed like Token(how cute).

Spuds McKenzie dog as Spider Man!

DinoDog.

Catch the REAL Bacchus parade tonight uptown, followed by a really short Endymion(boohoo).
