The French Quarter’s satirical Krewe du Vieux parade has been poking fun at local, national and global issues with bawdy humor and lots of phalluses for over 30 years. This year’s theme was Vaxxed & Confused and floats featured moments from the pandemic as well as Hurricane Ida and the time the mayor suggested we put month-old garbage in our cars and take it to the dump ourselves.
Krewedelusion‘s more family-friendly parade has been following Krewe du Vieux for over a decade. Though I didn’t get a great shot of them, I especially loved The Weather Girls – a tribute to local meteorologist, Margaret Orr. Both parades feature brass bands between floats and walking krewes.

The last of this weekend’s 4 parades will be ‘tit Rex, the tiny parade!
