"… to nap, perchance to dream – ay, there's the rub, for in this nap of dearth what dreams may come…" ( kinda paraphrased )
2017 is upon us, and what a weighty load it is! What better time to think of finer things, and what could be finer than a NAP?! Join us on Saturday, February 18th at 5pm!
The place is now famous: St. Roch & St. Claude ( actually the neutral ground at Marais Street on St. Roch ) for our NINTH ANNUAL ROLL! Come a little early to see the floats line up on the neutral ground to get pics and better looks.
We're happy to be back and we're happy to celebrate with all of you and all our friends in the Marigny & Bywater neighborhoods! See you on the 18th!
The Uptown route is packed with five different parades today. Downtown will feature a couple more unorthodox rolls. First, Carnival’s smallest parade, the krewe formerly known as “‘tit Rex” will pull their satirical shoeboxes through the Marigny. Then, the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus will celebrate nerdom in all forms in one of the season's longest parades.
The weather gods have once again bestowed another parade perfect day on the Crescent City. Although skies wil be overcast, the National Weather Service (NWS) predicts no chance of precipitation. Temperatures are explected to hit the low 70's with lows around 30 degrees.
’tit Rǝx is a walking parade famed for small, miniatured floats with a massive bite. The shoeboxes are reminiscent of grade school projects with an adult humor. Still, the parade is decidedly family friendly. Throws are handmade and eco-friendly, often themed to fit their float.
