Mexico’s Fat Tuesday (Martes Gorda?) celebrations may not be as huge or as raucous or as naked as some, however, the annual Mardi Gras parade here in Ajijic did have its moments…
…like this paper mache bull going after parading (intentionally bad) drag queens.
Male paraders traditionally dress up like old men or gaudy women. Sometimes it's hard to tell which look they were going for.
A guy with a long stick with a hook on the end of it had to follow Miss Mariposa and move the many low-hanging power lines out of the way so this her particularly tall float could safely pass.
What’s a parade with banda and some bovine love?
Paraders can choose to give bystanders a face full of flour or a face full of confetti. Either way, squealing and chasing ensues.

This tiny white burro is a fixture of Ajijic and the fancy pedicure isn't just for Mardi Gras. Its owner paints its hooves a different color every week or so.
