Bacchus 2013 - Mike Peters

Bacchus 2013
On Saturday, 2/9/13, I had an opportunity to photograph the Bacchus floats up close and personal. I have a friend who rides in Bacchus, and the floats were staged in Hall J at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans for bead loading. He was going down to load some of his special throws on the float, and he invited me to come along. I was able to walk around and shoot all the floats. This shot is one of my favorites - it is a head-on shot of the front of one of the floats.

Tigers size up major test at home against Jesuit
Hahnville coach Nick Saltaformaggio remembers a struggle last year against Jesuit, which left Hahnville with a 17-0 defeat in 2015 jamboree fare. It’s a night he isn’t keen on seeing repeated as his Tigers prepare to host the Blue Jays once again this season Thursday night—junior varsity kickoff is set for 6 p.m. with the varsity to follow.
