Krewe of Driftwood

Saturday, January 27, 2024, 1PM

Annually, approximately 2-1/2 weeks prior to Mardi Gras, the Krewe of Driftwood organizes a parade in the Driftwood neighborhood. Residents form groups to create "block" or "street" floats, using trailers pulled by trucks or even boats on trailers. Families join the procession, with some decorating the bed of pick-up trucks for the kids. The parade features a themed competition, with judges determining the best floats. The event resembles a neighborhood-wide block party, fostering community spirit and celebration.
