The costumed and
masked krewe assembled on Twelfth Night, January 6, 2013 (Sunday) at the Willow Street Car Barn
(map) at 6:30pm.
At 7pm sharp, the Phunny Phorty Phellows boarded the
streetcar and began their ride to "Herarld the Arrival of Carnival" down the St. Charles Ave. Streetcar Line.
All were invited to come see the PPP off beginning at 6:30, when the group started to gather. Of course Storyville Stompers were there with us.
The Phellows are
an historic Mardi Gras organization
that first took to the streets 1878
through 1898. They were known for
their satirical parades and today¹s
krewe members’ costumes often
reflect topical themes. The group
was revived in 1981.
One Carnival historian
has referred to the organization as
the “Dessert of Carnival.”
