Since 1993, The Mystical Krewe of Barkus has marched through the streets of the French Quarter every Mardi Gras. It is the only Mardi Gras Krewe whose membership is made up of ONLY dogs (whose owners are allowed to walk with them).
By 2008, their membership has swelled in the years to over 1000 and has become one of the most popular parades of the entire season. Many thousands of people come out to see the King, Queen, their court and the rest of Canine Tailwaggers march through 13 blocks of the New Orleans French Quarter.
All proceeds of this parade go to benefit humane and animal rescue groups.
