About This Event

Explore the vibrant expression that only Carnival season can muster, as you meet up with 19th-century float artists, dawn-breaking skeleton gangs, and homebound house-float creators—all while stopping to admire costumes, “royal” finery, and specialty parade throws such as Zulu’s hand-painted coconuts. Encounter the ballrooms and secretive float-making operations of the old-line krewes—along with the African American, female, LGBTQ, and populist krewes that have copied and/or parodied.
