Matching or themed outfits on the parade route is a tradition that lets parents and kids contribute to Carnival’s whacky charm.

If your family members (or friends) wear matching getups, send us a group photo. We’ll share the craziest, cutest and most creative looks with our readers.

E-mail .jpg photos (300 dpi and larger) to holidays@theadvocate.com by Feb. 1.

We can’t wait to see them.
