Sydney Mardi Gras 2014


distanbach-Sydney Mardi Gras 2014-33

Last night Sydney hosted the 36th Annual Mardi Gras parade. It’s been a wet weekend here but as luck would have it, no rain fell on the parade.

I really enjoyed it this year – the spectacle and costumes; the political and social commentary; the fantastic sense of fun. And, of course, all the smiles.

Happy Mardi Gras everyone!

      Thanks very much, Georgia. I know its not everyone’s cup of tea but, for me personally, its a wonderful event. I love the energy, smiles and the celebration of diversity or tolerance. Great stuff.
