Mardi Gras on Broad Street is the most popular parade in Nevada City and, being in February, often falls on a rainy day.  Not this year -- it was sunny and beautiful with just enough coolness to keep people moving and happy.  You can view slide shows in addition to the captioned pictures on this page and the next by clicking in the boxes below appropriate to your computer.  When the YouTube videos are playing click on the gear in the control bar and select the highest resolution available.  The 720p is suitable to click on the full-screen button, also in the control bar.
