The Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus Inc. 501(c)3 presents its 7th annual Carnival Parade on February 18th, 2017 with the theme: The Revel Alliance. This parade rolls at 7pm starting at the corner of Royal Street and Press Street
Chewbacchus has grown from a scrappy band of a couple hundred Science Fiction lovers into a walking super krewe of a couple thousand enthusiastic freaks and geeks representing the vast spectrum of pop culture fandom. The 2017 parade will be made up of over 200 sub-krewes and groups who enthusiastically parody and lovingly satirize everything from “Star Wars” to “Lord of the Rings” to “Monty Python” and beyond.
All of these groups march in a wondrous display of organized chaos each year under the glorious banner of the Sacred Drunken Wookiee, making the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus a magnificent “Revel Alliance”! For the first time ever, this years Chewbacchus Parade will also feature the inclusion of gas powered Art Cars on a case-by-case approval basis. Chewbacchus is also expanding to include our four legged canine friends in the mix. Dogs will be allowed to roll in Chewbacchus this year under the auspices of the brand new sub-krewe of “Star Woofs.” The Chewbacchanal features: Captain Midnight Band, Pink Slip,Brown Coat Brass, Dead Music Capital Band, and Tristan Dufrene and Friends.
