Laissez les bons temps rouler became laissez les bons chiens rouler as HarborWalk Village brought Mardi Gras to the dogs on Tuesday.

For the second year in a row, the Emerald Grande hosted a Mardi Paws canine costume contest.

The event featured free red beans and rice for the humans and a costume contest where more than a dozen of people showed off their pets decked out in purple, green and gold on our main stage. Judges awarded prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place and all dogs were given treats.

This year's contest was won by Woody. Second place went to Ocho and Sansa took third.
