Krewe of Iris
Beloved New Orleans entertainer (and “stripper of indeterminate age”) Chris Owens will be riding as the grand marshall of Iris this year, which will be celebrating with an “Iris Loves to Party!” theme, and throwing you Iris pillows and plush king cake baby dolls. With 36 floats and over 1,300 women riding, it’s bound to be a good time.
Krewe of Tucks
“Tucks Saves the Day” this year for Carnival, in a way that only an irreverent, toilet-themed krewe could. Keep your eyes and hands ready to snag their signature toilet paper parachutes, and -- special this year -- 10,000 toilet brushes hand-decorated by the Magnolia school.
Krewe of Endymion
Good luck, country music fans: Luke Bryan will be the guest marshall in this year’s parade, which is a huge one at 3,000 riders. They’re pulling out the stops this time, with sweet LED-lit floats and even the largest parade float in the world, which will carry a 260 (totally, absolutely, completely sober) riders. It’ll be something to see, that’s for sure.
