Now on Sale!
  The 2019 issue of Mobile Mask magazine - our seventh ever - is now officially on sale.
  The artwork is by Lala Courtney, who has been selling prints of Mardi Gras and Mobile in local shops for years. She often takes photographs and runs them through various computer filters until she finds an artistic combination she likes.
  This is the first time Mobile Mask has ever used a photograph - even a heavily filtered one - for the cover, and we think this is one is well worth breaking that mold. Such color and excitement, it simply screams "Mardi Gras!"
   You probably want to know where you can buy your copy of this 100-page guide to Mardi Gras in south Alabama. Mobile Mask is sold in more than 20 area stores. To find a list of those stores, just click on the heading at the left that says "The Magazine."
   If you live out-of-town, you can purchase a copy of the magazine through this web site. Just click on that same heading on the left.

Our Coverage of Mardi Gras 2018
  Mobile Mask covered 47 Mardi Gras parades and events in 2018. We shot 9,971 photos. From that, we posted 41 slideshows with a total of 1,766 photos and six Facebook albums with a total of 165 photos. In addition, photographer Miriam Albin covered another seven parades for us, producing seven slideshows from a total of 368 photos.
  From all of that, we pulled 100 of the best photos of the season and put them together in the slideshow you see just below.
  We also shot HD video of 32 parades and posted them on our YouTube channel. If you'd like to view our Best Of video, made up of dozens and dozens of small clips from those parades, click HERE. While you're there, check out our channel - or just click HERE. If you have a YouTube membership, make sure you subscribe to our channel so you can be among the first to see videos as soon as we post them.
