Sarah, Doug and I had paid and were riding in the Tucks parade for Mardi Gras. That means we got to attend the coronation ball AND the after party of the parade.

The Tucks Coronation ball was held at the Marriott on Canal. When we received the invitation, we knew it would be fun. It said costumes were preferred. Usually coronations are very boring and full of pomp and circumstance. I was actually considering not attending until I realized what kind of party this would be.

We decided on costumes and headed downtown. (Doug’s bee costume seemed to be the hit of the night. And yes, that is MY bee costume and tights.)

There were a lot of Great costumes just in the lobby. We finally headed up to the ball. Doug looks so naked.

We found some of Doug’s hive…(doug is the least dressed. ha!)

Then it was time for the royal court to be presented. They first presented the maids. It was amazing. The Maids were dressed as French maids! Not the trational krewe at all. Not only were they dressed as French maids, but they were all ages and they got “burned” as they walked up. It was hilarious and very inappropriate. Finally, the King and Queen were presented.

The royal court was together!

THEN it got awesome…

The band entered.

and we had a mini parade!

Get down girls.

We stayed out late dancing and having a blast. It really was fun. I am so glad we went. I am glad Doug F got to come with us! He is a fun dude – even as a crocodile.

Love and Hugs, Lizzie
