With Mardi Gras falling early in the year, and some parades being moved earlier than usual because of anticipated logistical headaches from New Orleans hosting the Super Bowl, the two Jewish Krewes in New Orleans find themselves marching in the middle of January.

Krewe du Mishigas will take its usual spot in this year’s Krewe du Vieux parade, on January 19 at 6:30 p.m. The parade’s overall theme will be Krewe du Vieux Comes Early, and will wind its way through the Marigny Triangle and lower French Quarter before landing at the Old Project Restore Warehouse for the Krewe du Vieux Doo, starting at 9:30 p.m.

The Krewe du Vieux parade uses smaller, mule-driven floats and has strong adult themes. It considers itself a classical parade in the use of mule-driven floats and an emphasis on satire.

The Mishigas theme is “Next Year in Uranus,” and Josh Burns and Sarah Wiseman are this year’s royalty.

Following the Krewe du Vieux parade by about 45 minutes is krewedelusion, the newest satirical parade. The Krewe du Jieux, after wandering for a couple of years, has found a new home with delusion and will demonstrate the Jieux World Order, accompanied by the Panorama Jazz Band.
