Ten parades are scheduled to roll Saturday in four parishes ~N.O. Advocate
The Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus will throw their annual
Carnival Parade and Chewbacchanal on February 7th, 2015. The Parade
rolls prompt at 6pm on an all new longer route through the Bywater and
Marigny neighborhoods. The Science Fiction and Fantasy themed Krewe is
doing a full-tilt religious parody theme this year… “Cult of the Sacred
Drunken Wookiee”. The parade will feature an 11 foot tall golden wookiee
effigy surrounded by a group of dancing devotees and over fifty
sub-krewes rolling with their own satirical themes and group costumes.
The Krewe will be joined by guest celebrity “Pope” Andy Richter, who
will be filming his Chewbacchus experience for the Conan Obrien Show! In addition, Saint Peter Mayhew, the Mighty Chewbacca Himself,
Incarnation of the Wookiee on Earth, Emperor for Life and Pope of Popes
will roll in the 2015 Chewbacchus Parade. He will be joined by his
lovely Royal Consort and Queen, Angie Mayhew, Our Lady of Space Grace!
