Celebrating the arrival
of the Carnival Season, the costumed and masked krewe of the
Phunny Phorty Phellows will assemble (socially distanced)
on Twelfth Night, January 6, 2021 (Wednesday) in the Willow
Street Car Barn.
At 7pm sharp, the Phunny Phorty Phellows will board the streetcar
and begin their traditional ride to "Herarld the Arrival
of Carnival" down the St. Charles Ave. Streetcar Line.
The public will not be allowed in or near the streetcar barn
in keeping with RTA COVID-19 restrictions. All are invited
to come see the PPP throughout the route but please be responsible

We all know that to #revelresponsibly
some new ideas about celebrating Mardi Gras 2021 have emerged-
even though our annual street car ride is cancelled, we will
be having a unique and interactive scavenger hunt for our
coveted hand-painted record throws!
The first clues on where to find records along the St. Charles
Ave street car line will be released
on Instagram on Jan. 6 at 5pm, followed by more clues
for more records! So be sure to follow
us on Instagram and set a reminder to keep an eye out
on Twelfth Night for clues. The following morning, an e-blast
will go out to all our subscribers with every clue so you
can see if any were not found the night before.

On January 23, 2021, The Intergalactic
Krewe of Chewbacchus planned to embark on its eleventh annual
adventure, this time navigating the impossible terrain of
socially distanced parading during a global pandemic. With
SubKrewe stations all over metro New Orleans, these â€śchaptersâ€ť
would honor the theme DONâ€™T PANIC! THE HITCHHIKERâ€™S GUIDE
TO THE NEW REALITY.
However, with the recent decision by the City of New Orleans
to move to Modified Phase 1, the 2021 celebration and all
SubKrewe activities will be halted. We are trusting the science
and directing all krewe members to suspend their planned celebrations
on January 23, 2021.
We're also postponing our scheduled scavenger hunt to a later
The Overlords are hereby announcing a Virtual Costume Contest
and are asking krewe members and the public to post photos
of their Chewbacchus looks on Facebook and Instagram with
the hashtag #chewbacchusnewreality2021.
The Overlords message to members, New Orleanians, and fans
across the galaxy is: Donâ€™t Panic!
PLANS BELOW HAVE BEEN POSTPONED
The Intergalactic Krewe of
Chewbacchus will embark on its eleventh annual adventure,
this time navigating the impossible terrain of socially distanced
parading during a global pandemic. Life finds a way.
On that day, The Sacred Drunken Wookiee will awaken from his
season of slumber to present the theme DONâ€™T PANIC! THE HITCHHIKERâ€™S
GUIDE TO THE NEW REALITY - VOLUME ONE.
Within the week leading up to VOLUME ONE, the krewe will release
â€śThe Guideâ€ť in the form of an online PDF brochure, which will
include a map to the locations of where the devoted subkrewes
of Chewbacchus will be stationed at homes and businesses around
the city of New Orleans on January 23, 2021. Each station
will represent a â€śchapterâ€ť of the guide. Fans and devotees
of The Sacred Drunken Wookiee will be able to visit these
stations on that date and collect the wonderful handmade throws
of our subkrewes and marvel at the beautiful costumes and
glorious contraptions of our members in a socially distanced
ALL CHEWBACCHUS MEMBERS WILL BE APPROPRIATELY MASKED, AND
ADHERING TO CURRENT SOCIAL DISTANCE AND OUTDOOR GATHERING
GUIDELINES. In return, it is expected that fans and spectators
will return that respect and be masked and socially distanced
as well. To emphasize a mindfulness to the safety and health
of our members, The Overlords of Chewbacchus hereby issue
the decree that no member of the public visiting a station
of our subkrewes will be entertained with the gift of a throw
if not masked and respecting current social distance guidelines.
Furthermore, in addition to the opportunity to still witness
the splendor of our subkrewes and chance to acquire their
beautiful handmade throws, DONâ€™T PANIC! THE HITCHHIKERâ€™S GUIDE
TO THE NEW REALITY - VOLUME ONE will include a multimedia
side quest for rare, one of a kind, artifacts of The Sacred
Drunken Wookiee. Those artifacts will be found at randomly
selected subkrewe stations and will reveal clues to the location
of a prized collection of rare treasures, a Chewbacchus merchandise
prize package, a lifetime membership to the Intergalactic
Krewe of Chewbacchus, and the Royal title â€śUltimate Survivor
of the New Reality.â€ť

2021 Carnival season has
a new alternative amid cancellation of parades due to COVID-19
NEW ORLEANS (Dec. 8, 2020)
â€” In a city that doesnâ€™t let anything rain on its parade,
the new Krewe of House Floats will roll forward with its plans
for a safe alternative to the traditional 2021 Carnival season
due to the cancellation of parades caused by the ongoing COVID-19
pandemic. Created by New Orleans resident Megan Boudreaux,
the Krewe of House Floats began as an idea posted to social
media and rapidly grew into an organization with more than
â€śIt started off as a Twitter
joke and now everyone wants to participate,â€ť said Boudreaux.
â€śWe look forward to this not only being a way for people to
safely celebrate Carnival season, but also as an opportunity
to help our cityâ€™s culture bearers.â€ť
The volunteers and subkrewes comprising
the Krewe of House Floats have spent countless hours planning,
structuring the organization, consulting with city officials,
brainstorming ways to help local artisans, and working on
an official Krewe of House Floats map where carnival-goers
can view participating houses, which will be decorated with
the traditional flair of the cityâ€™s beloved floats.
The decoration of house floats will begin
on Kingâ€™s Day (Jan. 6, 2021), the official start of Carnival
season. Nearly 40 neighborhood subkrewes have formed throughout
the greater New Orleans region, including Jefferson, St.
Tammany, St. Bernard and Terrebonne parishes. There is even
a subkrewe for NOLA expats in other states who, unable to
return home for Carnival season festivities, will be celebrating
with house floats from afar.
Throughout Carnival season, which culminates
with Mardi Gras Day on Feb. 16, the Krewe of House Floats
will channel donations to organizations around the city
who support those most affected by the cancellation of parades,
including but not limited to local artists, float builders
and other culture bearers. More details about community
partnerships are forthcoming.
For more information or to participate,

and Twitter (@HouseFloats). For corporate and individual
sponsorship opportunities, contact KreweOfHouseFloats@gmail.com.
