Cult of the Sacred Drunken Wookiee
The Chewbacchus Parade rolled on an all new longer route through the Bywater and Marigny neighborhoods. The Science Fiction and Fantasy themed Krewe did a full-tilt religious parody theme… “Cult of the Sacred Drunken Wookiee”. The parade featured an 11 foot tall golden wookiee effigy surrounded by a group of dancing devotees and over eighty sub-krewes rolling with their own satirical themes and group costumes.
The Krewe was joined by guest celebrity “Pope” Andy Richter, who shared his Chewbacchus experience with a national audience on 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 rolled with the Krewe again in the 2015 Chewbacchus Parade. He was joined by his lovely Royal Consort and Queen, Angie Mayhew, Our Lady of Space Grace!
Long live the Space Cult!
All Hail Our Sacred Drunken Wookiee!
Andy Richter reigns as “Space Pope” of Chewbacchus 2015
