Sun 2/8 Uptown 12p Krewe of Carrollton

 The krewe has weathered the tests of time through its nearly 90 years of existence. The organization made a lasting place for itself in 1933 when - due to the wettest season on record - Carrollton was the only daytime parade for the year. Nearly a decade later, a devastating den fire and the outbreak of World War II seemingly disbanded the krewe in 1942. However, in 1947, the surviving members reunited and resumed their place in the Mardi Gras lineup.
