Mardi Croix 2010 festivities soon come

When we were picking up our mail yesterday at Surf The Net ($12/month to have a local mailing address which is very handy!) we picked up a flyer for the 2nd Annual Beard & Moustache Contest, which is part of the Mardi Croix festivities.

The theme for this year is "Krewe de Croix Blasts into Outer Space!" 

This is something new to me.  Seems like it started in 2002. Here's their website:

The theme for the dog parade is MOONDOGGIES.  Sounds like fun... Wonder if they have other animals besides dogs...

Here are some of their scheduled happenings:
  • Jan 16: Beard Team USA Contest - Christiansted Boardwalk @ 2pm
  • Jan 23: Mardi Croix Season Kick-Off Party - Off The Wall beach bar, Cane Bay @ 7pm
  • Jan 30: Krewe de Barkus Dog Parade - Christiansted Boardwalk @ 3pm
  • Feb 13: Mardi Croix Parade - Northshore, Cane Bay @ noon
Mardi Gras is Tuesday, February 16 this year.
