V.J. Tramonte rode a pink elephant in the second year of the parade, and then a baby elephant when Mardi Gras had a Circus theme.

While everyone’s thinking about Thanksgiving, some islanders also have another kind of feasting and merrymaking on the mind — Mardi Gras.

So, if you see island Realtor V.J. Tramonte, congratulate him for receiving the 2020 George P. Mitchell Mardi Gras Award in honor of his contributions to the island festival.
