New Orleans Mardi Gras Parade Schedule 2015

the Krewe of Tucks

Founded in 1969, the Krewe of Tucks is an irreverent band which began as a rag-tag group of Loyola University students. The name is taken from "Friar Tuck," a defunct uptown pub where the students decided to create their own Carnival Krewe. 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.

About the Book
Never before has the history of the Mardi Gras celebration been looked at this way. Errol Laborde focuses on the first 60 years of the organized celebration in New Orleans, a period that bridges the premiere parade of the Mistick Krewe of Comus and the founding of the Zulu organization. Along the way he discovers fascinating characters; including a poetic journalist who survived a bloody attack, an archduke looking for fun and a would-be king finding religion. Laborde also links an African War with Custer¹s Last Stand and disproves some of the conventional wisdom about Carnival¹s early history. This is the most important contemporary book on early Carnival history. And it fun to read too.
