Basile Mardi Gras Courir, March 5, 2019
I hadn’t planned to take photos of the Basile Mardi Gras Courir this year. However, when I turned on the television at 5 a.m. and saw that KATC television was broadcasting live reports from the Pig Barn where the Basile Mardi Gras were already assembling, I decided to drive to Basile in time to take photos of the initial stops of the courir. As always, the Mardi Gras left the barn a little after7 a.m., so the sun had just risen when I took the photos in this album. After three stops, I headed south to take photos at the first two stops of the Tee-Mamou Courir.
