Event:    Bastrop Mardi Gras Parade
Location: Bastrop  Texas
Description: The 1st Annual Bastrop Mardi Gras parade was a small and fun event.  Learning of the event only a week before it occurred, my dad and I were  the only club members to attend.  This was a short parade lasting only about 14 blocks from start to finish weaving it's way through historic downtown Bastrop Texas.  Several politicians were present as usual along with a few riding lawnmowers, hot rods, horses, tractors, marching bands and pickups.  About par for a 1st Annual parade in a small town!
