New Orleans Krewes

New Orleans krewes are some of the most dedicated and well-funded Mardi Gras parading and social organizations out there.  As a result their floats and balls are sometimes bigger and a bit more impressive than in other places.  But we’d expect nothing less from the city whose reputation rests, to a great degree, on this one big party every year.
