Founded in 1951, the Krewe of NOMTOC (New Orleans Most Talked Of Club) began parading on the West Bank in 1970.

The inaugural parade had six floats, six bands, six marching units, one horse group, and a motorcycle squadron. Today, this krewe is comprised of 625 male and female riders, 26 floats, ten bands, and a number of marching and riding groups. Throws include ceramic medallion beads, jug banks, and their signature Jug Man dolls.

The Krewe suggests that the best spots for family viewing are Holiday Dr. and Gen. Meyer Ave. in front of Behrman Stadium or along Mardi Gras Blvd. or at the intersection of Nunez St. and Mardi Gras Blvd.

The Krewe’s sponsor, The Jugs Social Club has a rich heritage of civic activism, regularly donating funds to local schools, youth groups, and social programs. Each year a group of academic honor students is selected as guest riders in the parade.
