and of course (as tradition) the official ending of the Mardi Gras season culminates with the "Meeting of the Courts" tonight.

 

The Meeting of the Courts is where the King & Queen of the Mystic Krewe of Comus (oldest MG organization 1857 - doesn't parade anymore) meet the King and Queen of Carnival (Rex 1872 - oldest parading organization).  They used to have their carnival balls in the same building (Municipal Auditorium) and would lift up the curtain to join the two together for the meeting. Today (post Katrina), one Krewe is at the Marriott on Canal Street (the worlds widest street) and the other is across the street at the Hilton. Its weird to see the red carpet rolled across the street and royalty walking to the other hotel.....LOL
