This weekend is Super Sunday — when Mardi Gras Indians come out to show their costumes to the world. We caught up with Edward Buckner at his home in the 8th Ward — where he and his youth Indian tribe have worked all year on their costumes.
Mardi Gras Indians will gather Uptown this Sunday afternoon. Festivities begin at noon in A.L. Davis Park (at Washington & LaSalle Streets) where the Indians once again dress in their feathers and suits and take to the streets. The event was originally scheduled for March 18, but was pushed back due to rain.
