Above, Suzette Cook of Dunedin dances with her three grandchildren, from left, Karsyn Long, 8, Colten McGee, 9, and Ashlyn McGee, 5, at Dunedin's 15th annual "Mardi Gras on Main Street" Tuesday evening. "I've got to get my grandkids turned on to Mardi Gras," Cook said. Her beads are straight from Mardi Gras in New Orleans, pre-Katrina. At left, Brianna Murphy, 4, isn't the only member of her family to shoulder a load down the street: Her father, Donald Murphy, later pulled a float in the parade.
