Sunday Best

Mardi Gras Indians Step Out for Super Sunday (Photos)



Yesterday marked Super Sunday 2017, the third and final celebration of the year when Mardi Gras Indians don their suits and masks. In addition to all of the festive dress, the fête also featured strutting from the Young Men Olympians and the Lady Buckjumpers, and live music by the Hot 8 Brass Band, Young Pinstripe Brass Band, D.J. Captain Charles, Big Al Carson, D.J. Jubilee, Dave Lemon, To Be Continued Brass Band, and B.R.W. Singing Group. 

 


Suit Up for Super Sunday

Details & Routes to See Mardi Gras Indians



Mardi Gras Indians only don their suits three times a year. The first is obviously Mardi Gras, the second is St. Joseph’s Day, and the third is a massive meeting of the tribes known as Super Sunday. This year, St. Joseph’s Day coincides with the annual event held by the Mardi Gras Indian Council on the third Sunday of March, so expect celebrations to be bigger and better than ever for 2017. 


Lookin' Pretty

Super Sunday Details



Today (3.20), head up to Central City, make sure you look pretty, and then Get Out the Way. It’s Super Sunday. The Mardi Gras Indians will be outdoor a final time this year and the party will be on.

Spring has sprung and NOLA is in full bloom. Mardi Gras Indians are gathering for Super Sunday. The North Shore is rocking. Night wish is at the Civic, Gal Holiday is downtown, and Joe Krown is giving at the Leaf. On this day in 1839, Shreveport was designated as a city. Now, more hump day happenings. 


Super Sunday Details Drop


Mardi Gras Indians only don their suits three times a year. The first is obviously Mardi Gras, the second is St. Joseph’s day, and the final event is a massive meeting of the tribes called Super Sunday. Today, the New Orleans Mardi Gras Indian Council announced the details for the final gathering.


They Got That Fi-Ya

Mardi Gras Indian Hall of Fame Week



For many, Fat Tuesday is spent dashing around the city in search of Mardi Gras Indians. Traditionally, the tribes only mask on two other days: Super Sunday and St. Joseph's Night. However next week (8.3-8.9) it’s time to truly honor those individuals during the Mardi Gras Indian Hall of Fame Week. The theme of this year’s celebrations is “Year of the Wildman,” and the events include a photography gallery, an awards ceremony and more. 


Fiya Department: Musicians' Clinic Launches Bo Dollis Fund


By Lucy Leonard

This year, New Orleans lost one of the biggest names in the Mardi Gras Indian community— Big Chief Bo Dollis. In the wake of his death, the New Orleans Musicians' Clinic and Assistance Foundation established the Big Chief Bo Dollis Memorial Fund to both honor his name and help financially support Mardi Gras Indians in the city.
