Mardi Gras Contra Dance 2011 opened with Cajun two-step and Cajun waltz lessons, contra lessons, then Bayou Seco and Fiddling Friends marched in playing the Mardi Gras Song.  After a spontaneous Costume Parade, the 4 young band members were declared the unanimous winners, gaining the prized cookies.  The following photos are courtesy of Jeff Porter and Lonnie Ludeman.  Take a cue from these costumes for the next dance February 17, 2012.
