Marigny/French Quarter 7:15 p.m.

Founded: 2010
Membership Size: 100+
Theme: Secret Until Parade Day
www.krewedelusion.org

History: On January 30, 2010, just days before a historic mayoral election, krewedelusion, The Big Easy's newest satirical parade, will roll through the streets of the French Quarter. The new krewe was formed with the mission to save the Universe, beginning at its center, New Orleans. Its Captain, Oscar Diggs, announced that Harry Shearer will be appointed to lead the festivities, the city of New Orleans, and everything else from here on in. "Where most Krewes appoint royalty to govern the pomp and circumstance of parades and balls, and most of our democratically elected leaders limit their administrations to similar fundraising endeavors," said Krewe Captain Oscar Diggs, "krewedelusion intends to truly empower its leader to govern. Govern everything. Period. Case closed."

Keeping its annual theme a secret until the day of their parade, krewedelusion is the root organization from which a myriad of small upstart and existing parading clubs will blossom. "If you ever wanted to start your own satirical krewe, this is the year to do it and the club to do it with," said Captain Diggs. "We're just planting the seeds this year." One such blossoming organization is composed of those new New Orleanians who came to help with our recovery process, fell in love with our city and stayed. Dubbed, "The AlKreweists," these do-gooders will make their Carnival debut this year among many other fledgling groups such as the "Krewe of Bananas".

Known entities rolling with krewedelusion include the Noisician Coalition's Krewe of Joyful Noise, The 6t'9 Social Aid & Pleasure Club, Amigos de los Amigos, Krewe du Jieux, and The Pony Girls. Parade bands include the Dirty Dozen Brass Band who has not hit the streets of New Orleans as a group since the funeral of Tuba Fats.

krewe of Mona Lisa and Moonpie
7:00 PM Slidell

Route: (map)

http://www.monalisaandmoonpie.com/

Mission – The Krewe of Mona Lisa and MoonPie supports the arts and Olde Towne Slidell. As such, all members are requested to design their costumes and “Floats” based on the krewe theme. No motorized vehicles allowed. This is a fun, family event. Last, let no fake MoonPies be thrown!

Membership – All members must fill out a membership form. Immediate family members can join at the family rate. This does not include in-laws or grandkids. Membership has two categories, krewe member or flambeaux carrier.

Costume – All members parade in costume. It can be simple or elaborate, your choice as long as you are able to be identified by your sub-krewe theme. We are family parade and costumes should reflect that fact. Please remember we are a walking parade and comfortable shoes and attire are a must. Prepare for weather conditions that change at the last minute. We parade at night, so bright colors or battery lights help your public to view you in your full glory.

MoonPies – Our krewe’s traditional throw is the mini-MoonPie. We ask each rider to have 3-5 cases of MoonPies to throw during our 1.2 mile parade. It’s not cool to run out. The MoonPies run about $24/case. They can be ordered on the membership form.

Floats – Each sub-krewe needs to have a float or other un-motorized device to transport their MoonPies. Most of our floats are decorated shopping carts, baby strollers, etc. A large shopping cart will carry approximately five boxes of MoonPies. We encourage you to produce the float yourself in your own style.

Minions –Every sub-krewe captain needs minions. Attached are membership forms. The form can be copied. Note that November 14 is when the 2010 prices expire! People can register after that date, but membership dues go up. If you have family and friends who don’t wish to partake of the parade, but would like to join you at the ball, a limited number of tickets are available. Order them early.

This is your night to shine by the light of the flambeaux! We are excited to have you and look forward to a wonderful 2011 parade. If you haven’t experienced the excitement that is a Mona Lisa and MoonPie parade, below is a link to a video of the 2009 parade. Enjoy!

If you have any questions, please feel free to call Suzie Hunt at 985-768-6294.

The Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus is a Mardi Gras parade organization for the most revelrous of Star Wars Freaks, Trekkies, Whovians, Mega-Geeks, Gamers, Cosplayers, Circuit Benders, Cryptozooligists, UFO Conspiracy Theorists, Mad Scientists, and all the rest of Super Nerdom.

Our formula is simple… Bacchanalian Revelry + Sci Fi = BacchanALIENS.

We have a special place for Fantasy fandom within the Krewe under the auspicies of the Mystic Krewe of P.U.E.W.C. and a contingent devoted to Horror… the Krewe of the Living Dead.

Zulu throws coconuts, Muses throw shoes, the Krewe of Chewbacchus throws a whole range of incredible homemade goodies including: amazing furry bandoliers, stenciled towels (for intrepid galactic hitchhikers), wookiee panties, handmade TARDIS beanbags, DIY beads, decorated moon pies, and more!

The Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus puts together an amazing Carnival parade each year and rolls through the streets of New Orleans dispensing the blessings of Our Sacred Drunken Wookiee to the masses. Then we throw an amazing party… the CHEWBACCHANAL!

Chewbacchus marches with 400+ BacchanALIEN revelers in an amazing assortment of homemade Sci-Fi costumes. We roll with several of the best brass bands in the city and an incredible array of parade contraptions including a Mayan Temple on Wheels, a King Cake Flying Saucer (with an alien baby), a “Chariot of the Gods” Mobile Disco complete with glowing crystal skulls, flapping wings, rocket thrusters and spinning propellers, a XXX-Wing tricycle, the Bar2D2 mobile keg droid, a fleet of Snowspeeders, giant puppets and much much more.

Chewbacchus is the Future of Revelry. We are DIY, homemade, homegrown, totally sustainable, GREEN to the gills, and the 1st true OPEN SOURCE parade. Any and ALL Sci Fi costumes and themes are welcome and you can build and bring basically anything you want to roll in the parade. However ALL parade contraptions must be pushed, pedaled, pulled or powered by electric motors (or particle propulsion). We do not use internal combustion engines to power our parade contraptions. We utilize tricycles, shopping carts, robotic power chairs, rickshaws, golfcarts, etc.

Divine Protectors of Endangered Pleasures or DIVA
"Give us a line and we will cross it!"

1:30 PM in the French Quarter

Founded: 2002

Membership Size: 100

www.divineprotectors.org

History:  The Divine Protectors of Endangered Pleasures was established at an inaugural luncheon at Arnaud's Restaurant in 2002 with what was to become an annual Promenade on Bourbon and Royal Streets in divinely beaded costumes. The DIVAs (an all female group), their escorts (the Elvi) and their brass band (The Riverside Ramblers) provide a spirited and colorful show for all the citizens of their Protectorate. The focal point, or focal points, is the elaborately crafted beaded bustiers for which the DIVAs are known. The bustier, which must be hand- made, begged, borrowed or stolen, is a prerequisite for membership in the Divine Protectors. At the Divine Instigator's signal at 1:30 on each Friday before Mardi Gras, the Promenade begins. THe DIVAs proceed to march, dance, careen, stumble and tap dance their way through a parade route starting at Arnaud's on Bourbon, includes a stop at Pat O'Brien's patio bar, and returns to Arnaud's by way of Royal Street. They can also be seen prior to and after the Promenade on the Bourbon Street Balcony at Arnaud's restaurant.
See if you can catch one of the coveted DIVA beads from the balcony!
             
We are at risk of living in a world devoid of pleasure. But first, let us define and unanimously agree upon what pleasures are indeed in danger. Some of these pleasures include: a glass or three of wine or a gin martini, taking naps, long walks, extended conversations...The list could go on interminably. Anything that makes time pass, indolently, like a river, anything that heightens the experience of being wholly alive, and anything that makes living pleasurable and divine qualifies as an endangered pleasure that we must unite in order to save!

Friendly with doubloons, long beads, and kisses, the revelers enjoy entertaining themselves by one of their well-known pranks: lying on their backs in the street and quivering their arms and legs in the air like dying cockroaches in front of traffic, hollering "cockroach." The Jefferson City Buzzards begin marching Mardi Gras morning around 6:45am at Exposition Blvd. and Laurel St. Uptown. The club walks down Laurel to Webster hanging a right to Tchoupitoulas down Tchoupitoulas to Arabella, then to Magazine, to St. Charles Avenue down to Canal St., preceding Rex. The route proceeds to Rampart St. then takes a u-turn to end at Magazine and Poydras streets. The Buzzards handout and toss emblem doubloons, collector's items.
