Known for its irreverence, the Krewe of Tucks began in 1969 as a group of Loyola University students.
The club takes its name from Friar Tuck, an uptown pub where two college students decided to create
their own Carnival krewe after unsuccessfully trying to become white flambeaux carriers. The parade
has grown from a small nighttime parade of pick-up trucks into a procession of major proportions.
In 1983 the parade became a daytime event and in 1986 the parade route finally stretched to downtown.
Even though the club has grown in size and stature, Tucks has not lost its sense of humor.
Come join us at the Krewe of Tucks Extravaganza after the parade!
Make your Mardi Gras one to remember, and party with the Krewe of Tucks!
