It's the Monday before Spring Break, Denton. Time for mid-terms, crazy weather and remembering James Franco looking like Riff Raff. Last week was kind of a blast if we try to forget the part about Sunday trying to make us reach for our tauntaun innards again. Read on to find out what you apparently have to flash to get beads in a Mardi Gras festival in Denton!
Last year, there was much hullabaloo about closing Walnut St. off to cars and turning it into some sort of park/alley hybrid. While that's still up in the air, this past Friday, we got a preview of what it could be like for events. People in costumes, live music, food (including beignets and etoufee), family friendly activities, and dogs riding atop miniature donkeys filled Walnut St. for a Mardi Gras festival. We checked it out and had a blast.

After Saturday's super nice weather, winter reared its ugly head again on Sunday as temps dipped into the teens and we all learned to love the term ThunderSleet. Many schools were delayed or canceled on Monday morning. Which we're sure means we'll see plenty of day off pics tagged with #wddi.
