Mondo Kayo and Pete Fountain’s “Half Fast Walking Group” kicked off the morning! These two local traditions march before Zulu on Mardi Gras morning. We did get one of the medallion necklaces from Pete’s group and it is one of my favorites from the day. This was also the first year since they started in 1961 that Pete wasn’t with the walking club for Mardi Gras morning (he was ill).
