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 DVD
The first Mardi Gras in America was celebrated in Mobile, Alabama in 1703. In 2007, it is still racially segregated. Filmmaker Margaret Brown (Be Here to Love Me: A Film About Townes Van Zandt), herself a daughter of Mobile, escorts us into the parallel hearts of the city s two carnivals. With unprecedented access, she traces the exotic world of secret mystic societies and centuries-old traditions and pageantry; diamond-encrusted crowns, voluminous, hand-sewn gowns, surreal masks and enormous paper mache floats. Against this opulent backdrop, she uncovers a tangled web of historical violence and power dynamics, elusive forces that keep this hallowed tradition organized along enduring color lines.
