Dodging dire predictions of rain, the Krewe of Okeanos rolled with their “Getaways” theme on Sunday morning, followed by the Krewe of Mid-City’s presentation of “It’s About Time” and the Krewe of Thoth’s salute to kings.

Krewe of Mid-City

A line dance breaks out on Magazine Street in front of Henry’s bar as parade-goers wait for the Krewe of Mid-City parade to start. Okeanos rolled 30 minutes early because of the rain threat, but Mid-City waited to start, leaving a long lag between the two parades. (Robert Morris, UptownMessenger.com)
