This year's theme for Mid-Summer Mard Gras is:   
Dirty One XXXI--Coming in Hot
This is the K.O.A.K's thirty first year of parading during the doldrums of summer in the Carrollton neighborhood. The parade is and has always been all inclusive. They invite all to revel in the heat of the summer and enjoy the free expression of parading through the streets of New Orleans.
