This is what we call true Mardi Gras style. What is coastal Alabama style without a pineapple print 🙂
This float is self explanatory. Love the creativity by this group and the homage of the local area DJ to a true musical legend in African American culture.
If you are going to head to Mardi Gras, you better head out in style.
