Dispatch 18: Mardi Gras 2017

Photography VICTORIA BARKLEY and CARLY VIATOR

There is no time in Louisiana like MARDI GRAS

And because all of that sugar-frenzy revelry and folklore fantasia chasing can't be captured by a single contributor, we asked both photographer Carly Viator of Electric Magnolia and social media specialist Victoria Barkley of Online Optimism to shoot festivities and document their fun in New Orleans and Acadiana for Wonder South.

As Victoria says, "Mardi Gras is the most magical time of year..." Here are their images (Victoria's first, Carly's second) from the #WStakeover, plus a few extra just for that post-Fat Tuesday Lagniappe trip, babes...
