This year’s theme is titled ‘Tucks hits the Sweet Spot’.
The satire-driven krewe is known for its comical floats and gigantic toilet (A.K.A the King’s Throne). You can catch the krewe this Saturday (Feb. 22) at 12 p.m. on the Uptown Route.

The 1,800-person krewe has paraded for 52 years and it all began when a couple of college kids decided to start their own krewe.
The pair started Tucks after a failed attempt to become white flambeaux carriers. They began as a night parade of pick-up trucks before eventually moving to day time in 1986. Now, you can catch the krewe rolling down the Uptown route.
