Our 10 Favorite Photos From Mardi Gras Celebrations

Sunday may have been a bust, with all that terrifying thunder sleet and what not. But the Mardi Gras parties on Friday and Saturday went off without a hitch, thanks to the stunning springtime weather. In Denton on Friday, Walnut Street was filled with revelers wearing masks, covered in body paint and drinking a brewski or 10. Then, Saturday night the Kessler Theater opened its doors for green and purple party people with its O Carnivale Masqerade Ball. If you missed out on the fun, or were holding out for the Oak Cliff parade that was canceled, don't worry, we've got party pics. Here are a few of our favorites.
