Societe de Sainte Anne made its annual loosely assembled and delightfully wacky and creative procession from Bywater through the French Quarter to Canal Street on Mardi Gras (Feb. 13).

“As a walking club, the only requirement for membership is that you know about it,” according to the group’s website.

In all manner of costume and lack thereof, pulling and riding in carts and homemade floats or just sauntering about, the group is one of the best things about going to the French Quarter on Mardi Gras.

NEW ORLEANS — Not everyone is on the parade route on Mardi Gras day in New Orleans.

Thousands of people put on their best homemade costumes and march to the Marigny to join the Society of St. Anne in their annual march.

The loose parade winds through the Marigny, Bywater and French Quarter towing small floats, sound systems and more glitter than you’ll see on every other day of Mardi Gras combined.
