St. Joseph’s Night

Under mild skies, the Mardi Gras Indians donned their suits and took to the streets Wednesday (3/19) for their most important event this side of Fat Tuesday.


The St. Joseph's Day celebrations, which also include this coming weekend's Super Sunday parades, are traditionally the only times that Mardi Gras Indians appear in their full regalia outside of Fat Tuesday. With all of the Catholic Italians celebrating this holiday in the streets, the Indians were able to blend in and celebrate as well. 


Photographer Brandon Robert was around N. Claiborne Ave. on Wednesday to capture the splendor of the suits:
