11th Street Cowboy Bar and Harleys & Horses float took the lead position in the 2017 Cowboy Mardi Gras parade on Saturday, Feb. 18 in Bandera.



James McGroarty and Stella Tedesco kicked off the most colorful parade in the Hill Country for the 12th annual 11th Street Cowboy Mardi Gras in Bandera on Saturday, Feb. 18. In addition to Stella’s fabulous head dress, everyone was appropriately bead-dazzled and feathered for the occasion. In many cases, it looked as if the extravagantly costumed habitués strolling the streets of Bandera had gotten caught in an explosion at a sequin factory.
The weather was perfect; gumbo, fabulous; and music, superb. The crowded dance floor at 11th St Cowboy Bar after the parade proved no one could resist the tempting beat produced by the zydeco and Cajun musicians.
