All Dogs Go to Mardis Gras: Photos and Video

Mystic Krewe of Barkus Youtube

As Kevin dutifully pointed out, Barkus was yesterday and I was there to capture the glory of it all with my camera and camcorder. It was, by far, one of the most fun things I've ever done in this city. The turnout was huge, the dogs were all adorable and I didn't witness a single fight or skirmish (though a couple parading in front of me did pick up their dog's mess, which was kind of gross).

This year's theme was "Battmutt:The Bark Knight" and you gotta think the Barkus founders have to be completely pleased with how big this parade has become. It was also the easiest assignment I've ever taken with work consisting of: fawn, take picture, gawk, film, drink, take picture, rinse and repeat. This parade is the ultimate proof that New Orleans is Dogtown, USA (well that and the fact that both All Dogs Go To Heaven movies were set here). There are photos all over the internet of the parade, but I've taken the best of the best from what I took and put them after the jump. Enjoy.
