King Chester & Queen Dagmar begin their Reign!
This past weekend we kicked off Tiny mardi gras with the 60 minute Mardi Gras Build competition which saw Robyne Flanagan take the top prize with her excellent sculpture which can be seen on flickr as well as in the French Quarter along with pics of the other builds! Afterwards everyone was entertained by Strummer Voltee who performed live music as a tiny Rhino!
On sunday we had the Costume Gala which saw upwards of 40+ tinies dancing in the streets of the french Quarter on Raglan to tunes spun by DJ Shady Fox. Folks dressed up in their best tiny mardi gras costumes and entered themselves into the running to be picked the King & Queen of the 2009 mardi gras! In the End Chester and Dagmar were chosen and both were awarded a whopping $10,000L and the crown and tiara as they began their year reign amidst much celebration of tinys while fireworks lit up the skies over Raglan.
This coming weekend we have more Mardi gras activities including more Mardi Gras Primtionary on friday!
