The second Saturday of Mardi Gras was in full swing on a cool, sunny afternoon. Things kicked off with the Krewe d’Esprit Rosaire Parade, a family-friendly affair that started off with motorcycles and marching bands and ended with a cavalcade of colorful antique corvettes.

Next up, the Z Krewe 26th Z Processional unleashed hundreds of bead-tossing Zanies on the crowds gathered in downtown Galvestion.

Finally, as night fell, Galveston’s oldest and largest Mardi Gras Krewe, The Knights of Momus, which dates back to 1871, took over the route for the Grand Parade. Momus’ 2020 theme was “Sail Through Scandinavia.”
