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.

2019 Cover Reveal!
  This will be the cover of the Mobile Mask magazine, and it will officially go on sale January 6, 2019.
  The artwork is by photographer Lala Courtney, who has been selling prints of Mardi Gras and Mobile in local shops for years. She often takes her 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!"
  We're also currently selling advertising space in the 2019 issue of the magazine. If you'd like to join our family of advertisers, just send an email to and ask for our advertising info. Be sure and tell us your name and the name of your business.
  The cover is ready, and we're really excited!
