Phunny Phorty Phellows - KREWE INFORMATION - Route
Uptown 7:00 p.m.

Humor and whimsy are still very much a part of the Phunny Phorty tradition with some members favoring costumes inspired by current events and the peculiarities of local culture. Masked revelers gather at the streetcar barn in Uptown New Orleans for the Twelfth Night ride and get into the spirit of the event by carrying signs and banners with humorous slogans and messages. There are champagne toasts and second line dancing as the sounds of the famous Storyville Stompers New Orleans Brass Band fill the air; the Phellows, after cutting a ribbon and announcing, “It’s Carnival Time!” then board a decked-out party streetcar.

While on their merry way, the Phellows and other revelers sip champagne, eat King Cake, dance and let fly with the very first beads of the Mardi Gras season. There are two King Cakes used for this phirst night phrolic, one for the female members and one for the gents. Custom dictates that whoever takes the slices containing the plastic Carnival babies are declared Queen and Boss Phellow for the year.

Krewe du Vieux - KREWE INFORMATION - Route
French Quarter 6:30 p.m.

The Krewe du Vieux is a non-profit organization dedicated to the historical and traditional concept of a Mardi Gras parade as a venue for individual creative expression and satirical comment. It is unique among all Mardi Gras parades in the city because it alone carries on the old traditions of Carnival celebrations, using decorated, hand or mule-drawn floats with satirical themes, accompanied by costumed revelers dancing in the streets to the sounds of jazzy street musicians. We believe in exposing the world to the true nature of Mardi Gras - and in exposing ourselves to the world.

Krewe of Choctaw - KREWE INFORMATION - Route
Uptown follows Pontchartrain

Chief Choctaw was just a papoose back in July, 1935, when he first saw the light of day. His dues were 50 cents per month. Originally formed as a social organization, Choctaw did not parade until 1939 when ten old U.S. Government mail wagons were purchased from a salvage company for $50.00 each. The old stripped-down mail wagons formed the chassis for the first Choctaw carnival parade floats.Choctaw's organizing group were Leonard Santos, L. "Whitey" Knollman, Albert Leddy, Louis Zinc, A.P. Gary, W.N. Burmaster, Henry Klink and John Beninate. Meetings were held in the rear of the Santos Cafe, located at Slidell and Brooklyn Ave., Algiers.

Krewe of Freret - KREWE INFORMATION - Route
Uptown follows Choctaw

The original Krewe of Freret paraded for over forty years, bringing joy to the Freret neighborhood until the mid-1990′s. The original Krewe was captained by Nash Barreca, with a den located at his family’s restaurant on Freret Street, Frank’s Steakhouse. The floats would line up on Freret Street behind the Loyola Field House (now the gym/parking garage).

The Krewe’s LLC expired nearly twenty years ago, before the new Krewe apopted the moniker in late 2011. Several descendants of Freret’s original ranks grace the new Krewe’s membership roll. Much like the old Krewe, the new Krewe cherishes the Freret Street mixed business and residential community.
In late 2011, seven young Loyola graduates lamented the notion of squandering hard earned money to join a formal Krewe where they knew virtually no one and would have limited input. So rather than joining an existing Krewe, they sought to enhance Mardi Gras by creating a world class parade.

Those simple three words that utter so softly off of your lips, “Krewe of Freret”, drive Tulane and Loyola alumni to come together for the greater good of Carnival. Whereas the word ‘Freret’ was previously a division line between two campuses, the Krewe of Freret aims to unify these enthusiastic young professionals and infuse new vigor into Mardi Gras while simultaneously fanning the revitalization of the Freret corridor and her traditions.

The Krewe has received incredible support from the community, with many Freret Street business owners counted as Krewe of Freret members.

Mystic Krewe of Nyx
KREWE INFORMATION - Route
Uptown 7:00 p.m.

It's a tradition in Mardi Gras that the names of the Krewes are usually after Gods or Goddesses in Greek or Roman mythology. Nyx was the Greek Goddess of night. They wanted to parade at night and be the goddesses of the streets of New Orleans during their ride. Bringing together women of diverse backgrounds and enhancing the spirit of Mardi Gras for the community is the vision for the Krewe. Embracing a little bit of tradition, with a twist of new and fun ideas, is what makes the Krewe of Nyx so special. All women are goddesses no matter what age they are. Every woman deserves to be adored, respected, and made to feel beautiful.

Knights of Babylon - KREWE INFORMATION - Route
Uptown 5:45 p.m.

The Krewe of Babylon, is the Carnival's most interesting Krewe when it comes to this schedule. In some future years this Krewe will probably become one of the future Super Krewes because of it's very make up. It consists of prominent business men and women from around the country.

Founded in 1939 the group has consistently turned in some of the best parades for sixty three years. At last count the group had 250 members or Knights and was still growing.

True to Carnival and Masonic tradition, from which a fair number of these gentlemen come, they are very secretive in nature. Since it means a great deal to the Knights the identity if their king is never released to the general public. The exact title of Babylon's elaborate parade and ball theme are also undisclosed until the day of the event. Customarily, each float depicts a chapter in a continuing story, usually historical, classical or literary in theme.

Le Krewe d'Etat - KREWE INFORMATION - Route
Uptown 6:30 p.m.

The theme for the parade is, as always, a closely guarded secret. The Dictator, however, assures his denizens that no rank or office is immune from his wit. All who preen in public are fair game for this irreverent band of hellions whose battle cry connotes the essence of the organization and, indeed, of Mardi Gras itself:

VIVITE UT VEHATIS. VEHITE UT VIVATIS.

Le Krewe D'etat will have a "Dictator" rather than a traditional monarch. The
Dictator's identity will never be revealed to the public. This year's Le Krewe D'etat floats will, as always, depict a satirical theme.

From a small nighttime parade of pick-up trucks, the Krewe of Tucks has since grown in size and stature to become a procession of major proportions.

Tucks, however, has never lost its sense of humor, maintains an "Animal House" reputation and boasts a "no sponsorship requirement" to become a member.

The Krewe Of Tucks parade ends near the Marriott Hotel, site of the Tucks Extravaganza which is open to the public by paid admission. The Ducks Of Dixieland March in the Krewe Of Tucks as a Marching group Parade each year .

With the largest floats ever assembled, and parade themes with which everyone identified, Endymion quickly became the people's parade. The krewe also changed the look of Carnival, making an instant impact with its magnificent court costumes and enormous headdresses. The concept of showcasing the krewe's royalty and court within a parade was novel. People actually came to see Endymion's "pre-parade" of mini-floats, just to catch a glimpse of the visual spectacle.

Uptown 11:45 a.m.

S
everal innovative “firsts” were introduced to the Mardi Gras tradition by Mid-City and the Krewe was the first to use animation in float designs (1947) and decorate their entire floats in Foil.

The Krewe of Mid-City was founded by Charles A. Bourgeois and the Mid-City Civic Association in the early 1930’s. Mr. Bourgeois created the Krewe’s motto, “Pour La Joie de Vivre” (“For the Joy of Living”) and designed the familiar interlocking heart emblem -- both are still in use today. Mr. Bourgeois and his wife, Gertrude, were the first monarchs of Mid-City reigning over the Krewe’s inaugural parade; comprised of six small, mule-drawn floats, a few bands and mounted riders, the parade was themed “Romance of 1934.”

 MARDI GRAS DAY, March 4th 2014

Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club - KREWE INFORMATION - Route
Uptown 8:00 a.m.

Early in 1909, a group of laborers who had organized a club named "The Tramps," went to the Pythian Theater to see a musical comedy performed by the Smart Set. The comedy included a skit entitled, "There Never Was and Never Will Be a King Like Me," about the Zulu Tribe...

While the "Group" marched in Mardi Gras as early as 1901, their first appearance as Zulus came in 1909, with William Story as King.

The group wore raggedy pants, and had a Jubilee-singing quartet in front of and behind King Story. His costume of "lard can" crown and "banana stalk" scepter has been well documented. The Kings following William Story, (William Crawford - 1910, Peter Williams - 1912, and Henry Harris - 1914), were similarly attired.

1915 heralded the first use of floats, constructed on a spring wagon, using dry good boxes. The float was decorated with palmetto leaves and moss and carried four Dukes along with the King. That humble beginning gave rise to the lavish floats we see in the Zulu parade today.

Krewe of Saturn -KREWE INFORMATION
Roman scholars thought this mythological figure so important that they named a planet and a day (Saturday), for him. Saturn was the god of agriculture, time and celebration. In his honor the ancients even called their festival of merrymaking the Saturnalia, an ancestor of Mardi Gras. The krewe was founded in 1983 and presented its first two processions in the City of Kenner, then moved its parade route to Metairie in 1986. The next year Saturn returned to Kenner, then moved to Orleans Parish in 1993. Since its formation, the organization has been very active in fund-raising for charitable causes.
