Krewe of Crescent City
Date: Tuesday, Mar 4, 2014 | Location: Uptown | Time: Follows Krewe of Elks Orleans
Founded in 1947, the trucks in the Crescent City parade hold over 3,000 male and female riders.
The trucks each represent a different Carnival organization. The krewe sets no overall theme for their units, with each float bearing its own title and theme. The Krewe of Crescent City follows the Krewe of Elks-Orleans and is the last truck parade in the Orleans Parish. The krewe signals the official "beginning of the end" of Carnival.
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.
