Mardi Gras Indians Super Sunday

This event has been re=-scheduled twice due to weather, now on for 3/30/2014

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 30, 2014'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

    I'll email Rebecca and Brian and suggest that we setup a twitter account for the New Orleans Photography Experience. I would normally say that we could use the meetup.com comments for people to stay informed, locate the group, etc, but in my experience, I don't get the comment notifications in a timely fashion.

    Perhaps twitter could be used to keep people informed better, etc.

      Twitter would be good, I guess I'll have to ask the kids to help me with an account, lol! Haven't yet had a reason to get one!

    Don't understand what happened but being from New York I guess I'll have to learn how you guys do thing here in the south . We should meet after an event just for the safety of the group members , also we should always team up in pairs so no is left alone .

      All the gatherings that I've gone to, we did buddy up, unfortunately for this one, I lost the two I was with but the crowd got a little ridiculous. If our previous member is who I think she is, she came with a friend, talked with us for awhile and then went back over by her friend. I am pretty sure that she was told that some of us were going to go down the street for something, but like Bill Collins stated, it ended up being better than expected with the indians and we were gone longer.

    Jeff, I like the idea of the post event meeting and hopefully that can be done for gatherings in the future because we have gotten separated at City Park without the crowd.

    To Former Member,
    Sorry you got separated. Not even sure we met. A number of us went to the corner of Washington and LaSalle near the liquor table, as a crowd seemed to be forming. I posted here where we were when Desi was looking for the group. I was intrigued by a thatched roof and three of us went to investigate. We stumbled upon one Indian tribe changing and took pictures, met the members and the Chief. Also met another photographer and invited them to join our group. Returning to the corner we were still the only ones there. Sorry you felt put out but in that type of crowd with the players coming from all sides, it's easy to get separated. If we left you, it wasn't personal and I don't know if I ever saw you or if you introduced yourself.

    Rebecca is sick (and in bed), and I am not not feeling very well either. As I do not want to pass it to anyone, we will not be able to make it today. Just shoot it like a parade and you can get some good shots. Try to get together with each other and introduce yourselves. Many of you know each other, but look for new members, too. Enjoy!

      Sorry you two couldn't make it today, hope you're both feeling better soon.

    I'm glad that I got a chance to actually make it to one of the outings, I just missed everyone there (or didn't know who you was when I was by you). Thank you to all who was there.

    Anybody here yet? Where do we meet?

    March 30, 2014

    • Bryan

      A good place to meet will be in the corner of the park @ Washington and Freret - that is where some of the Indians setup displays.

    • Bonnie

      It wasn't the normal setup of the past, the Indians came in already dressed and went right to the street to parade, don't know if they stayed around in the park after because I had to leave. Will have some pictures posted later.

    Wish I could be there! Already had plans for the day. And I think the background is part of the story. Just my opinion.

    Also- it is very unattractive there- if there is a way to set up some sort of background it would be a vast improvement...

    March 25, 2014

  • richard r vallon j.

    I think this would be for 11 AM not PM.

    Hopefully the skies are clear and dry !
