Barkus Parade: Mardi Gras gone to the dogs!

I’ve never seen this one before, but there is a parade just for the dogs/puppy’s.  Its called “The Mystic krewe of Barkus”.(Oh I get it now Barkus!).  People spend some serious cash on their dog costumes too.  

The event started back in 1993 and has become one of the favorites with the locals. It goes right though the French Quarters.

Check out the link below for the full story and there is also a video there you can watch to see what this event is all about.
