Parade

All the World Loves a Parade

 

Masked revelers on floats, marchers, and horseback riders respond to the age old cry “Throw me something, Mister!” by tossing beads, toys, and trinkets. Doubloons are coins of no monetary value, minted for the Krewe, and collected by many.
 
In case you are wondering who catches the bill for costumes, floats, throws, and bals, it is the carnival krewe members for themselves and their guests, the thousands of visiting revelers.
