The fun, toilet-themed Krewe of Tucks parade features throws like hand-decorated scrub brushes and plungers as well as other potty-humored beads, toys and poop-shaped keepsakes. I heard a dad ask his toddler to hand him the “poo-poo bottle opener” that had fallen to the ground.
Traditionally, logo-embossed rolls of purple, green and gold toilet paper are tossed over the arching live oaks lining St. Charles. This year, most of the TP was white giving the streamers a more haunted quality.
The school marching bands and various dancers/spirit kids are always great. Adult dance krewes included Crescent City Fae, Muff-A-Lottas, Mande Milkshakers and Streetcar Strutters. Dames de Perlage showed off their beaded corsets and the Laissez Boys rolled down St. Charles reclining in motorized lounge chairs – cocktails and cigars in hand.
After a log day of Saturday parades, I danced with the Pussyfooters in Krewe of Thoth on Sunday. Since I already posted from behind-the scenes on parading with my Pussyfooters sisters in the Carrollton and Muses parades, I decided to focus on dancing one last time for the season and only take a few photos.
Next up – the Krewe of Red Beans parade.
