In 1867, Mardi Gras came to Galveston Island, and although times have changed, the celebration is still just as exciting and colorful. Every year more than 500,000 people head to Galveston Island for the festivities, but the true celebration starts weeks before. Krewes or organizations choose their kings and queens, balls are held and everyone is preparing their costumes and floats. This year the partying began February 25 and lasted until March 7. Mardi Gras Galveston 2000 kicked off with live music in the Entertainment District until midnight, bead throwing by the Krewe of Thalasar and a huge celebration with the Mystic Krewe of Aquarius. On Saturday, the 14th annual Mystic Krewe of Aquarius parade took place. This parade consists of more than 80 different drill teams, bands and marchers. There are also 10 floats in the Aquarius parade where Aquarius Krewe and Krewes from Harlequin, Thalasar and Lunacy throw thousands of beads to the Mardi Gras party-goers. "It's always great to come to something like this, because you get to see people from all walks of life, and you get to experience a lot of fun," said Pin Lim, a junior music composition major at the University of Houston. The Galveston Mardi Gras is not just about the parades, beads or the amount of alcohol consumed. Mardi Gras Galveston 2000 also includes various tournaments, jazz concerts, colorful art, costumes, tasty food and spectacles galore. There was no breast-flashing allowed at this year's Mardi Gras, but some party-goers did try to make an effort to get a little exposure. Mardi Gras Galveston 2000 went off without a hitch and it's a tradition that will continue on for years to come. by Linda Canales MwvilGm FaeU The date of Mardi Gras depends on the date of Easter. "Mardi Gras; a French term meaning "Fat Tuesday^ is observed during the Lenten season and is considered a Christian tradition. Participants throw beads down to Mardi Gras revelers as souvenirs of Dressing up was just part of the fun of attending Mardi Gras. Participants express their own personality.
