Bright lights, big krewes


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.
