Since 2017, this band of 40 merry revelers has floated through the city on the Rampart - St. Claude Avenue Streetcar from Elysian Fields and St Claude, across Canal, past the Superdome, to Union Station and back. When everything times out as planned, the krewe passes the Phunny Phorty Phellows who ride the St. Charles Streetcar. Stand at Canal between Carondelet and Rampart if you want to witness the meeting of the krewes.
