Mardi Gras may have already come and gone on February 28, but Ojai celebrates the
occasion a bit later! Why not? It just keeps the fun going longer!
Here are my photos! Arranged in seven galleries
and including two short video clips!
This was the 27th annual Ojai Mardi Gras. The theme this year was "Through the Crystal Ball:
Past, Present & Beyond". The theme inspired a wide range of costumes, art and performances.
Event organizer Shane Butler is a veteran of over ten years of Ojai Mardi Gras organizing. His
wife Kelli is one of my favorite dance partners and she invited me into this special world!
The Ojai Mardi Gras Band performed for plenty of dancers. A highlight was the Coronation of
the King and Queen of Mardi Gras for next year. They are responsible for making sure it happens next year!
Mark your calendar now for that next Ojai Mardi Gras!
