Hello, fellow Mardi Gras enthusiasts! I’m Karen Brem, the Marketing Director for the Historic Mardi Gras Inn, nestled in the vibrant heart of the famous French Quarter. As we gear up for the most exciting time of the year, I can’t help but bubble over with excitement for the upcoming Krewe di Vieux parade. Set to snake its way through the French Quarter this Saturday, January 27, 2024, at 6:30 pm, this is one event you won’t want to miss – especially if you’re ready for an adult-themed extravaganza!
Krewe di Vieux is not your average Mardi Gras parade. It’s an uproarious, cheeky celebration that perfectly captures the spirit of New Orleans. Known for its satirical themes, the parade is a beloved tradition that sets the tone for the Mardi Gras season. And let me tell you, it’s definitely on the naughty side!
As you stand among the throngs of revelers, be prepared for a sensory overload. The parade is renowned for its over-the-top floats, each one more audacious than the last, showcasing the incredible creativity and wicked sense of humor of the krewe members. The air is thick with laughter and cheers, as the parade-goers are treated to an array of ‘adult’ throws – think Mardi Gras colored thongs, condoms, and adult playing cards. It’s all in good fun and adds to the playful, naughty atmosphere of the night.
But, a gentle reminder – Krewe di Vieux is definitely not a parade for the kiddos. This is an adults-only affair, where the jokes are bawdy, the themes are risqué, and the fun is unrestricted. It’s the perfect night out for those who enjoy a little spice in their Mardi Gras experience and aren’t afraid to embrace the eccentric and the risqué.
At the Historic Mardi Gras Inn, we’re all about embracing the spirit of Mardi Gras. While we might not be as wild as the parade itself, we promise you clean, affordable accommodations and a warm, welcoming staff ready to make your stay memorable. Located just a stone’s throw away from the parade route, we’re the perfect base for your Krewe di Vieux adventure. After a night of raucous fun, our cozy beds and friendly atmosphere will be a welcome retreat.
As you plan your evening, remember to embrace the spirit of the parade. Dress up, let your hair down, and don’t be afraid to laugh at the absurd and the outrageous. Krewe di Vieux is a reminder of the joy and freedom that epitomizes Mardi Gras in New Orleans. It’s a time to forget your inhibitions, to revel in the unique flavor of our city, and to make memories that will last a lifetime.
And while you’re here, don’t forget to explore the French Quarter. With its historic architecture, fantastic food, and lively bars, it’s the perfect backdrop for your Mardi Gras experience. From the cobblestone streets to the balcony-lined buildings, every corner of the Quarter has a story to tell.
So, there you have it. Krewe di Vieux is more than just a parade; it’s a celebration of everything that makes New Orleans unique. It’s cheeky, it’s naughty, and it’s a whole lot of fun. As your host at the Historic Mardi Gras Inn, I can’t wait to welcome you to our beautiful city and to be a part of your Mardi Gras adventure. Let’s make this a night to remember!
