Ryan Place neighborhood Mardi Gras Parade
The Inaugural Fort Worth Ryan Place Home Owners Association - Mardi
Gras Parade and After Parade Party.
The neighborhood where Owl's Clover is located has really great 4th of
July Parades. Christmas time lots of people from all over come to see
the homes decorated and enjoy a Hanson cab ride through the streets.
Many of the homes were build back in the late teen's and early '20's.
Well, the Ryan Place neighborhood has decided to have their first
inaugural Mardi Gras Parade this year. The parade was on Saturday
February 21, 2009 and started around 12 noon.
If you have every wanted to be a part of a Mystic Krewe this is your
opportunity. We have formed the Mystic Krewe of Athena's Owls. This
will continue until we no longer have parades.
Owl's Clover will sponsor a vehicle and one "float". Actually the
float is a carefully disguised and fabulously decorated trailer. We
did lots of painting and thinking about the decorations as these
pictures show, mostly out in the back of Owl's Clover. More
decorating and final touches were worked on the two Thursday and
Friday work days. We had several great hands put on their paint
clothes and came over to give the "float" some wonderful and creative
inspirationsóWe had lots of fun!! Several came to dress up and throw
We dressed up as our favorite Goddess, God or what ever pleased our
notions. The Bar-B-Q grill fired up with chicken, fresh vegetables
and portabella mushrooms and turkey sausage. We had plenty of
potatoes and grilled vegetables. After Party began at 4:00 PM and
lasted until 8:30 PM.
What a great time we all had, both working together, and celebrating
together. Next year we will have new ideas spurned from this years
efforts. Have fun viewing the pictures.
