‘tit Rex Is The Biggest Little Parade At Mardi Gras

Parades are usually big and over-the-top events. Creating the largest, more elaborate float has become a common occurrence for those involved in the parade scene—that is, unless you’re talking about
. What is ‘tit Rex you ask?
Though Inspired by Bacchus (lover of all things in excess), the creators of this event wanted to take things in an unexpected direction and establish a small spectacular. While the floats themselves have all the intricate details you’d expect, their size is probably not what you’re used to seeing on the parade route.
You see, for
‘tit Rex each float begins with a shoebox for its base. You might be thinking that the scale is just too small to create anything impressive, but you’d be surprised. Krewe members work countless hours planning and creating their miniature masterpieces (often politically focussed).
The parade is held each year
in celebration of Mardi Gras
. This year’s event is set to take place on Sunday, Feb 17 at 4:30pm. This is a switch up from previous years when the parade was held on Saturday. The start time is half an hour earlier than usual too. The parade starts outside St. Roch Tavern and goes down St. Claude to Music Street to Franklin St. to Royal Street.
The parade has grown in popularity over the years and has now become quite a favorite among Mardi Gras events. Those who are captivated by ‘tit Rex also have the option of attending the ‘tit Rex Ping Pong Ball at the Allways Lounge just after the parade. Admission is just $10.
