Why just watch the parade when you can ride in it?
Mix your Mardi Gras just the way YOU like it ...
Mardi Gras isn’t a day … it’s a season. It’s not just parades, it’s also formalwear and coronations and dancing and exquisite meals and and dressing crazy and foot-parading throught the Quarter … and so much more. Some Krewes like to package it all up and sell you a one-size-fits-all experience. We all love the parades, but maybe you’re not all about the tux and ballgown thing. Maybe you’re more of a midnight poboy than a lavish luncheon. You want that float spot, but you’d rather bring your own beads and throws. No problem! We’d rather let you customize your experience. Your dues cover the parade and parade-day party events and let you add the Coronation Ball, the Galatoires Luncheon and Krewe beads and throw packages a la carte.
Everyone is Welcome
If you want to be in our Krewe, then we want you with us! Whether you’re a year-round New Orleanian or a visiting out-of-towner looking for a memorable Mardi Gras experience, you’ll have a fantastic time and make life-long friends and memories.
