Sat 1/31 French Quarter 6:30pm Krewe du Vieux

 Born of the remains of the Krewe of Clones, which began parading in 1978, Krewe du Vieux marched for the first time in 1987. When the Krewe of Clones decided to become more respectable, Craig "Spoons" Johnson and Don Marshall decided to keep the parade's original raucous, art-inspired spirit alive in the Krewe du Vieux Carre (“Vieux Carre," which means "Old Square," refers to the French Quarter).
