Queen’s Luncheon

The Mobile Carnival Association's Royal Court members were photographed with the stuffed animals they were present by their knights following a luncheon to honor Queen Louise Vass (in the blue top and white hat), February 15, 2010. The Queen's luncheon, as well as the gift of the stuffed animal was an annual tradition in Mobile, Ala., which boasts the nation's oldest Mardi Gras celebration.
