Lundi Gras on the Mississippi
The Riverwalk hosted its 29th annual Lundi Gras on the Mississippi. The masked King of Rex made his way via train this year to meet the Zulu King- a tradition that has been facilitated via boat since 1987. Bands included Baby Bee, Soul Rebels and The Topcats! Thanks Carly and Frank!
Krewe of Tucks
The irreverent Krewe "Saved The Day" on Saturday with their awesome throws and great spirits! The Mixed Nuts rocked the after parade and Four Unplugged kept everyone going at the Tucks Coronation Ball. Thanks Lloyd!
Krewe of Bacchus
Bacchus- the King of Wine and Vegetation- well, not sure about the vegetation part but this year's parade was stunningly prodigious. King John C. Reilly was in great spirits at the King's party and Extravaganza. Entertainment included Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Jessie's Girl, The Boogie Men, Karma and the Wiseguys. Thanks Dr. Dimitri!
Krewe of Muses
The first all female Krewe to parade at night uptown had record crowds at the parade and after party. The nine Muses were daughters of Zeus in Greek Mythology and the Krewe celebrates their wildness before they were tamed, virtues after they were appointed and their mystique place in New Orleans where each virtue seems to thrive. Salt-N-Pepa put on an amazing show. Thanks Staci!
Krewe of Centurions Celebration
White Oak's oldest client, Krewe of Centurions, held their annual celebration at the Marriott. This year's ball entertainment included The Benchwarmers and No Idea. Thanks Norman!
