PHOTOS: Sydney’s Fair Day Kicks Off Mardi Gras Down Under

RodSpark-MGFairDay2013-9543

PHOTOS: On Sunday, Sydney’s Mardi Gras season officially kicked off with Fair Day, which saw more than 50,000 revelers gathering at Victoria Park. On the main stage performers like Heather Peace and Florian Korty entertained the crowd, while the Doggywood event saw pooches dolled up in their Sunday best, and vendors and community groups drew festivalgoers to their booths. Even a little afternoon rain didn’t mar the otherwise sunny and celebratory day.

The festivities continue through February, followed by the main Sydney Mardi Gras Parade on March 2.

      History will be kind to Scott Gatz, the first commercial blogger to put fifteen photos on one page instead of forcing readers to click through fifteen pages (plus ads) to see them.

      I take no such credit. Dan Avery and team have had this style on posts for a while, I just followed their lead.
