Celebrating our 35th year, the costumed and masked krewe of the Phunny Phorty Phellows will assemble on Twelfth Night, January 6, 2018 (Saturday) at the Willow Street Car Barn (map) at 6:30pm.
At 7pm sharp, the Phunny Phorty Phellows will board 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.”
