Mardi Gras in New Orleans is a season that last for six weeks. Leading up to the big day, there are parades several times a week in various parts of the city. Parades “roll” at different times and often use the same routes; they’re well organized and most of the time there are no traffic jams. On some occasions, tho, they can intersect and one parade is forced to stop while the other passes.
This happened on Mardi Gras day this year, and Rex, the parade we were watching, took a 45 minute hiatus to allow Zulu to roll by. Normally, this could be an annoyance for everyone involved, but it so happened there were two great bands that stopped right in front of us (separated by a float), and they ended up getting into an impromptu Battle of Marching Bands to pass the time. It was all quite entertaining for the crowd. The Youtube video (linked above) of the performance is 40 minutes long, but if you skip to the 18:30 minute mark, you can see the drum majors of one of the schools do their thing, which was pretty cool (it lasts about two minutes.). There were lots of people documenting, and I’m always a sucker for the meta shot. Film, canon F1, TriX 400.
