Alana Meets Universal’s Mardi Gras Performers – March 15th Report

Alana Meets Universal’s Mardi Gras Performers

On Sunday, March 15th, we finished up our trifecta of hitting up all three Mardi Gras parades this weekend.  After wearing her mask for the past few days, Alana decided to mix things up and wanted to entertain her friends with her new jester’s cap.  Hilarity ensued!

After she finished meeting all her friends, we settled into our permanent spot for the parade.  This also gave Alana the chance to say Hi to all her friends one last time before the parade began.

The parade was amazing – as always – and Alana was beaming from all the attention she received from all her new friends.

Happy Mardi Gras everyone!

Alana Meets Universal’s Mardi Gras Performers – February 15th Report

2015 isn’t the first time that Alana attended Mardi Gras, but it’s the first time she was able to fully interact and meet all the performers of the event.  Initially shy, she immediately fell in love with everyone when they complimented her Mardi Gras mask.  She insisted on wearing it every time she met new “friends”.  She loved this event so much that we attended twice this weekend (Sat 2/14 and Sun 2/15) and plan to attend many more times before the event ends in April.
