While all of the Louisiana Krewes work very hard to produce quality parades, in the black community there is no Mardi Gras without the Krewe of Zulu. Their theme coconuts, black and gold umbrellas, and unbelievable costumes is worth the wait each year. Coming off a huge Zulu Ball which included The O’Jays, Bell Biv Devoe, Jaheim, Mia X, and many others, the Zulu Social Aid Club waits every year for Fat Tuesday to shut the city down proper!
Ask anybody what’s their favorite parade and you can bet Endymion is in their Top 3… if not #1 on their list. With more than 2,000 Krewe Members, the hardworking Endymion Team continues to evolve and expand the limits of what a Mardi Gras Krewe can achieve. Every year the Saturday before Mardi Gras Day is reserved for the Pride of Mid-City New Orleans…. the Krewe of Endymion. Check out our exclusive photos and videos of all the fun during the 2017 Endymion Parade in New Orleans.
