Carnivale!!!

On Saturday there was a mini Mardi Gras celebration in Manitou Springs (sorry…I can't stay away from that place). Lots of color, music, costumes, excitement and BEADS!!

Listen to this traditional U.S. Mardi Gras song to get the best atmosphere….don't miss it….it has a great rhythm!

The Dixie Cups

Hundreds of strings of beads were thrown to the on-lookers. Below the guy in the silver hat tossed some silver beads to the guy in front of me who waved his hand.

My Carnivale bead collection!

Parade is over- the little guys find other things to keep them occupied :))

for me such events are opportunities to remove the masks we are wearing every day replacing it with the mask of our real selves. how great it is to let go and do all childish nonsense :-)
