We got all dressed up (masks included) and participated in the parade festivities on Saturday. If you're itching for some Mardi Gras action but not willing to head all the way down to New Orleans, I'd definitely recommend St. Louis - it was awesome! The parade and festivities completely took over the town, with the streets shut down and pop-up dance parties everywhere you looked.
Bert and Ernie were also there. :)
And this crazy disco guy.
We had a GREAT time and I was definitely glad I went on the trip. I was hesitant at first just because it required me taking off a day from work, but the memories we made are totally worth it.
What experiences do you hope to create this year? What's your "25 under 25?" Or perhaps "30 under 30?"
