About The Krewe
Krewe Du Vieux actually means Krewe of the Old (folk) which in this case could also be translated to Krewe of the experienced (folk). The somewhat raunchy Krewe takes an X-rated approach on current affairs and pokes fun at our beloved city as well as national politics. In other words, this is not a parade you want to take young children to. Throws include condoms, doubloons, sweets and other trinkets. Previous year’s mottoes included “City Of Yes, Yes, Oh God Yes”, “Bienville’s Wet Dream”, “Crass Menagerie” and Krewe Du Vieuxxx Is XXX Rated.”
