One of Joe Cain's "Merry Widows" rides on their float as it travels down Washington Street in downtown Mobile, Ala., during the Joe Cain Procession at Mardi Gras, March 2, 2014. "Cain's Merry Widows" are a female-only mystic society formed in 1974. Each of the "widows" proclaims that Joe loved them best. Joe's mistresses also add to the light-hearted squabbling. French settlers held the first Mardi Gras in 1703, making Mobile's celebration the oldest Mardi Gras in the United States. (Photo by Carmen K. Sisson/Cloudybright)
