This year I attended my first St. Catherine's Day Hat Parade in New Orleans. The parade is inspired by the annual event of the same name in Paris, is held the weekend before Thanksgiving.
St. Catherine of Alexandria was an early Christian martyr. She is the patron saint of milliners, seamstresses and unmarried women.
The winner for best hat was Janet Noble. She will lead the parade in 2019.
