About The Parade

‘tit Rəx is New Orleans only MicroKrewe. A group of artists, business people, teachers, workers and bon vivants founded ‘tit Rəx in 2008 in a response to the super krewes constantly setting records for floats, throws and extravagance. ‘tit Rəx takes an opposite approach focusing instead of on massive floats that take up entire blocks, the ‘tit Rəx floats are made out shoeboxes that look like full size floats. Inspired by Bacchus, the father of all super krewes, the creators of ‘tit Rəx asked: in an age when super krewes are setting the bar for larger and larger spectacles, when route consolidation has resulted in epic evenings of parade upon parade, when the size and velocity of throws has become at times physically hazardous to the recipients, could New Orleans not benefit from one krewe that takes the opposite approach? The parade’s name comes from the Cajun abbreviation of petite, used as a prefix before the name of the smaller or younger of two people who share a first name.
