Mardi Gras Lady Mobile Has Moved

I have been asked by the wonderful people over at Alabama Live to write a Mobile Mardi Gras weblog for them. It is featured right under the Masked Observer's column. In order to save time and still be able to bring you all the Mobile Mardi Gras news, events, and pictures I am moving this section of my Mardi Gras Lady site to The other areas of my site will remain the same.

Mardi Gras has already begun here in the Port City with the Krewe de la Dauphine Parade on Saturday and of course I was there. Please visit me at my new home to read all about it and see all the great pictures.

This is my new address or you can click on the title link above.

Dauphin Island Mardi Gras parade Saturday

Dauphin Island's Krewe de la Dauphine will present its Mardi Gras parade Saturday with the theme "What I Want to Be When I Grow Up."

The group has designed nine floats celebrating several admirable and not-so-admirable vocations -- beach bum, pirate, firefighter, flight attendant and shrimper, among others.

The krewe put the parade together despite the devastation of Hurricane Katrina on the island Aug. 29. Three families among the krewe lost their homes, said Jake Simms, one of the krewe's parade organizers.

Mobile Mardi Gras ads a rarity

A new $85,000 television and radio campaign touts Mobile's "family friendly" Mardi Gras in hopes of enticing visitors from regional cities such as Baton Rouge, La., Montgomery and Destin, Fla., according to the Mobile Bay Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The campaign is the first of its kind for the bureau, which hopes to use the ads to fill hotel rooms along Beltline Highway, according to bureau President Leon Maisel.

"We rarely market Mardi Gras because we're booked," Maisel said. "It'd be like marketing the sun coming up."

All black Mardi Gras krewe makes history in Mobile

For the first time ever, an all black Mardi Gras crew will parade through downtown Mobile on a Saturday night.

(Mobile, Ala.) January 17 - For the first time ever, an all black Mardi Gras Krew will parade through downtown Mobile on a Saturday night.

The Conde Explorers, which currently has more than 150 members, will roll on parade route "A" February 11th at 6:30p.m. WBLX radio personality "Ray-Ray" will serve as the parade's Grand Marshall. The theme will be "70's & 80's Greatest Hits."

In the past, the Conde Explorers nor the Mobile Area Mardi Gras Association (MAMGA) has held a primetime parade schedule. Marching bands from LeFlore, Williamson, Vigor, and Davidson High Schools have already made commitments to participate in the parade. Many other local and regional groups plan to attend.

The Conde Explorers was established in May 2003. It started with 20 people.
