With a catchy name like that how could this event not be a blast??? Well it lived up to its name. This street party in Mountain Brook's English Village all began last year when Continental
Bakery and Chez Lulu Restaurant owner Carole Griffin dreamed it all up to celebrate the bakery's 25th anniversary. It was so well received that she decided to do it again this year. Area merchants as well as artist and vendors joined in and made it a great event for the community.
How can I describe it? Well, try and imagine sweet little fairies decked out in tutus and wings, a brass band replete with pink feathers, a Chicken Lady (with chickens) , giant papier mâché puppets, a bread toss, hula hoop contest, oh and did I mention the mock beheading of Marie Antoinette? I have a bucket full of photos but today, let's salute Carole who was the absolute star of the show!
What fun, do you remember making flowers out of tissues (kleenex)?
Fantastic outfit and shots, V.! When I saw the top shot I immediatly thought the lady could be at the Royal Ascot Races (UK), but as I scrolled down I realized she couldn't! LOL! How very cool!
She had an incredible hat and quite the "get-up" on! Must have been fun to photograph her, non?
Totally sooooooooo much fun. Needs to be a yearly event! And you need to be the official photographer!
This is an everyday scene in Ft. Lauderdale.
Gotta have that hat!!
The striped tights are popular with several Carnival Band members too.
Oh, My! Hard to tell where your blog header photo stops and today's post begins! Very vibrant and pre-summer-like!!
Any excuse for a party!!!
We humans are a craaaazy lot aren't we!!!!
Wish I had been there! I would really have liked to have seen Carole in person! Beautiful photos, V!
She's so beautiful and she bakes! A winning combination. Great shots, V.
When I looked at the first picture I thought the Easter Parade came late to B'ham. When I looked at the second I thought you were having a Dr. Seuss festival. When I looked at the third I thought B'ham ladies run around in their nighties. What a confusing city.
Fabulous shots and a great event!
We're all about a good time here in B'ham!
Do you wear striped tights?? Hummmm???
B2,Yep your hometown is just that!
Not such an easy thing to wear! And she wears it so well. But the shoes? The shoes! Well...
She could have been the Queen of the New York Easter Parade with that hat!
Now that is flair!
Oh how precious. I love this lady - and your sensitive shots of her.
I'll second JM's comment. I love that top shot. She's got such an interesting face. Very lively.
These 3 photos are very nice
