I just finished watching the first season of Treme.  If you haven't seen it before, it's an HBO series about New Orleans after Katrina.  The music was great, but I found the plot advancement to be a little slow.  Coming up this weekend is a little taste of Mardi Gras in Cambridge - the 18th Annual Carribbean and Mardi Gras Festival.

Cambridge Carnival International, a colorful and festive celebration that is rooted in African traditions is preparing for the 18th annual Caribbean and Mardi Gras style festival and parade. This year's date is September 12, 2010, 12 noon – 7pm in Kendall Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts and the event is held annually the weekend after Labor Day. This year’s rain date is Sunday, September 26, 2010.

The highlight of the festival is a grand costume parade accompanied by rich rhythmic musicality promoting all types of cultures. Revelers masquerade through the streets of Cambridge in dazzling handmade costumes dancing to the international beat and flavor of Carnival—Cambridge style. The costume parade route spans 1.3 miles starts at 12:30pm and begins near the Charles River at River Street and Blackstone Street, passes throughCentral Square along Massachusetts Avenue, continues up Main Street and ends in Kendall Square near MIT,Cambridge.

I checked the weather; as of now it doesn't look like it's supposed to rain on Sunday. But with all these tropical storms & hurricanes developing on what seems to be a daily basis, who knows what to expect.
