Venice Beach Mardi Gras Parade 2015 Photos
& Mardi Gras Parties!

Venice Beach Mardi Gras Parade 2015 was a blast! A fun time was had by all who watched and participated in it with colorful and fantastic costumes! The 14th Annual Parade was led by Miss Jessica accompanied by the Mudbugs Brass Band, Grand View Krewe (Miss Jessica, Johann Yo Funk Stein, Gregory GWild Sonnier & friends), Windward Krewe (Todd & Theo von Hoffman & friends) and Abbot Kinney Krewe. Also in attendance were: the Burkholder Krewe (Steve, Jenni & kids), My Venice Life Krewe (Janet Gervers & Tryg Hanson), Suzy Williams & Gerry Fialka, Tree Man, Beth Allyn, Bradley Bobs Victoria & James Partie and so many more! Wow! The parade was followed by live  music on the Boardwalk with the Gumbo Brothers in front of the Candle Light Cafe (good post parade eats there)! (Boo hiss to Venice Bistro for canceling the Gumbo Brothers annual show at last minute!) It was fun dancing to the Mardi Gras inspired music in the hot sun on an 85 degree day in Venice Beach!
