Krewe of Choctaw
Date: Saturday, Feb 22, 2014 | Location: Uptown | Time: Follows Pontchartrain
Founded in 1935, The Krewe of Choctaw had their first parade in 1939, 4 years after the founding of the organization.
Although the krewe took the name of a Native American tribe that inhabited Louisiana, the krewe's roots are in southern government.
The Krewe of Choctaw follows the traditional Uptown route in New Orleans. It rolls on Saturday at 2 pm on the first weekend of the carnival season.
Please note that tickets are available for grandstand seating on St. Charles Avenue, but tickets are not required to see the parade. If you arrive early enough, you can claim a spot on the route with a blanket and some chairs.
