Carnival is in full swing in the Capital City with multiple balls every weekend. 

Today's column plays catch-up on a few holiday festivities, and then we'll be ready to shout "Throw Me Something Mister!"

Here's some of the upcoming parades. The Mystic Krewe of Mutts Mardi Gras Parade rolls Jan. 28 along North Boulevard with festivities beginning at 10 a.m. The Krewe of Artemis Mardi Gras parade rolls through downtown Feb. 2 beginning at 7 p.m. followed by Krewe Mystique de la Capitale on Feb. 3 at 2 p.m. and the Krewe of Orion at 6:30 p.m. that day.

The Krewe of Southdowns kicks things off the following weekend with its neighborhood parade at 7 p.m. on Feb. 9. The following day, we throw caution to the wind for the Spanish Town Mardi Gras Parade — "Game of Thongs," which rolls at noon.
