Each year the City of Manitou Springs holds a fun event, their own little Mardi Gras. At 1:00 they have a parade with some of the most unusual, interesting and wild costumed people you will ever meet. They have enormous puppets, human powered floats, musicians (legit and impromptu) and dozens of other sites just begging to be photographed!

When the parade starts it will be crowded, so let's get there early to begin taking pictures and stay thru the parade and celebration.

The Mumbo Jumbo Gumbo Cook-Off will be held in Soda Springs Park. For $1-$2 you can sample the entries.

Manitou is a qwerty, fun place to spend a Saturday. I hope you will join us!

Let's meet at the Park and Ride off I-25 and Castle Pines. We can ride share and maybe get a better parking spot when we arrive in Manitou Springs. It takes an hour to get there so we need to meet at 9:15. I will wait until 9:30 after that you are on your own! If you do not want to ride share, then meet us at the address/time indicated above. (If you need to contact me call or text Kristal Kraft at[masked]-2022.)

Pack light, as you will be walking. Bring your best "people shooting lens" and some comfy walking shoes. Don't forget some spending money for the Cajun treats for sale!

P.S. I will post a photo of the event as soon as MEETUP gets their act together. They have really goofed up their website with the new design! It really cramps our VISUAL style!

Photo Credit - Bruce Norman (At some point in time the developers at Meetup will FIX the images so we can have both landscape and portrait. )

How to find us:Let's meet at the area of El Paso Blvd and Old Mans Trail
