America goes to a party

ALL DRESSED UP is an ongoing photo essay of American festivals, the people who attend them, and what they wear to them. From Mardi Gras to Sturgis, from powwow to rodeo, from sublime to silly, Americans like to dress up. These images come from New Orleans, Fort Collins, Sturgis, rodeos, powwows, and rendezvous. There are twenty more festivals on the list.
