Papas World – Madre Gras at Lake Wales – Florida!

We decided to attend this celebration at Lake Wales.

We love a parade – and they threw in the floats!

One of about a dozen floats
and some were as big as this
and others half this size
but all were throwing beads!
MADRE GRAS
at Lake Wales , Florida!
And we placed our chairs
right on the curb in the grass
and had a front row seat!
The BEADS just came our direction
and WE DID NOT HAVE TO DO ANYTHING
to get them! LOL !!!!!
Each float had a different theme
and each float blasted their own music
and each float parked side by side in the park
each blasting their music!
PARTY TIME!!!!!
There was music
there was laughter
there were dancers
there were cops
there was booze
OH I LOVED THIS PARADE
Just sing it to Toby Keith! LOL
A lot of work went into this
on all of these floats!
And of course for my wife
a Float of a viking ship!
Don’t know how the Swedes fit into all of this
but there they were!
The Grand Marshall
I think!
Lake Wales
MADRE GRAS!
They also had a stage with live bands
and all the while in the park
the floats had their own music
and parties going on!
The lake and pier
The entrance to the party by the lake
before the parade
after – we could barely
make our way through here!
Thousands of people converged
and we managed to sit up our chairs
to the left rear of the stage!
A look back from the pier
to the party like tents
from Lake Wales.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

  1. Looks like it was a WONDERFUL day!! I have some beads from years ago (maybe they’re antique–or at least vintage?–by now. And you are welcome to add them to your collection!!
