the Basin Street Regulars club (sponsors of the Jubilee By The Sea) agreed

to take it on in 2004 so it could see its 25th anniversary.  Sponsoring TWO

festivals in a year is a monumental task for a club, though.  ONE is a

monumental task! >>

What a shame. I have only attended the Mardi Gras a few times but really had 
a great time when I did. I do believe that the days of large festivals, at 
least so many of them as we use to have, are fading again. Maybe they will emerge 
again another time but I remember when I was so active we could attend a 
festival almost every other week or so and it was so much fun. Now, of course 
since I have been in the wheelchair for the last 7-8 years and don't get to attend 
anywhere as many as I use to but I always loved the idea that they were still 
going on.
