Mardi Gras Indians Super Sunday

Aside from Mardi Gras Day, the most significant day for the Mardi Gras Indians is their Super Sunday. The New Orleans Mardi Gras Indian Council always has their Indian Sunday on the third Sunday of March, around St. Joseph's Day. Their festivities begin at noon in A.L. Davis Park (at Washington & LaSalle Streets) where the Mardi Gras Indians once again dress in their feathers and suits and take to the streets to meet other "gangs".
Also, the Tambourine and Fan organization traditionally put on their annual "Super Sunday" parade on the Sunday closest to St. Joseph's Day, with their event beginning at Bayou St. John. In recent years, there has been yet a third Super Sunday called Big Sunday, which falls in April during the open weekend between French Quarter Festival and Jazz Fest.

Super Sunday March 17, 2013's expected procession is as follows:

Begins at noon in A.L. Davis Park at Washington Avenue and LaSalle Street
Starts on LaSalle
Left at Martin Luther King Blvd
Left at Claiborne
Left at Washington Avenue
Ends back at A.L. Davis Park

    Was that a blast or what ????? Love this event, so much action, beautiful costumes, and started off with the cutest little boy I just wanted to hug. Thank you to everyone that got there at ten, it is always nice to meet others in the group and we even gained a few new members that had just heard about us yesterday, but didn't sign up yet. Looking foward to seeing everyone's pictures, I have some other things I have to take care of tonight, so I won't be able to get to them til tomorrow.

      Thank you for telling us about it, I had a blast and the pictures that are uploaded already blows my mind. To be up close and personal with your subjects is a alien concept to me... I guess that's the portrait part of taking pictures and something that I will have to learn. Thanks for sharing.

    • Patricia

      I'll be walking up to the park with my daughter-in-law and little grandson at 11:00 - will look for you and say hello, and be taking lots of photos.

    For those that want to meet, it will be easier to meet at the corner of Freret and Third St for 10am. Before the parade, alot is going on in the park and you can get some nice shots of the indians getting ready. If this works for you, let me know so I'll have an idea of how many people will be gathering together for this crazy event.
