Mardi Gras: Puttin' on the ritz

Queens dress in evening gowns and their full festival regalia for the event, preparation which often takes assistance (as the Yambilee Queen here helps cinch Queen Cotton into her mantle). The girls often compare their festival finery, including the full trains, which are often elaborate, including the Shrimp & Petroleum and Frog trains shown here.
