Nevada City’s annual Mardi Gras parade this afternoon was still a festive occasion, despite the wet weather. Organized by the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce, local organizations and businesses took the street to street, with the parade scheduled to have 35 different participants. I love the color from this parade, including those watching from the crowded sidewalks. It’s always fun to have a dance party, a fire-breathing dragon, a band and numerous floats cruise down Broad Street in the middle of the afternoon. What was your favorite part of the event? I’ve posted more photos on the Outside Inn’s Facebook page. Laissez les bons temps rouler.
