Inaugural Krewe of Chewbacchus to Roll Sunday
Posted on Mar 4, 2011 in Local Issues
The Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus will be rolling during Mardi Gras for the first time this year providing sci-fi afficionados with an outlet in the Carnival festivities.
The parade, which is the brainchild of the 3 Ring Circus Arts Education Center, will feature costumes and contraptions including ‘pyrotechnic puppetry’ from a variety of realms within the sci-fi pantheon.
In homage to Star Wars, Peter Mayhew (the actor who played Chewbacca on the big screen) will be serving as King.
The parade rolls Sunday March 6 starting from the Big Top (1638 Clio) and making its way through the CBD.
