There are more than 60 Carnival krewes, but few have emerged as super krewes. With bright, intricate floats carrying thousands of riders, super krewes are experts in putting on a show.
Tucks, known for its original and uproarious throws, will ride with more than 1,600 members this year.
Iris, the third-largest continuously operating krewe, is also the oldest all-female parade.
Formed in 1993 by Harry Connick Jr., Orpheus was the first super krewe to include men and women.
The relatively new, all-female Nyx became a super krewe in 2016. It’s now the largest krewe in Carnival.
