Mardi Gras’ Melange

by The 100 Companies

Few events are as iconic as Mardi Gras. And, what would it be without its parades? Each krewe boasts a unique brand of little-known facts that molded the city.

Rex is one of the most iconic krewes. It even reintroduced European papier-mache to floats in 1959.

Iris is the oldest running women’s krewe. But, did you know it began as a group called the Yu-Chi Club?

Societe de Sainte Anne is a different animal. It eschews the pomp and circumstance of other krewes; “riders” only need to show up to participate (assuming they find the starting location).
