2017 Parade

Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus 2018 Theme Announcement: Get On Board the Mothership!

The Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus returns for its eighth annual Mardi Gras parade on February 3rd, 2018! The vast Nerd Horde of approximately 2,000 marching members will once again take to the streets to celebrate its love for the Sacred Drunken Wookiee with the theme… “Get On Board the Mothership”. Chewbacchus consists of over 150 distinct subkrewes, each of which pays loving (and sometimes satirical) homage to the full spectrum of Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror and everything in-between.

To celebrate the 2018 theme, the Krewe plans to create a Chewbacchus Mothership which will feature reclaimed bits and pieces of decommissioned parade contraptions from the ever expanding Chewbacchus fleet of bicycles, keg carts and art cars. Imagine the DIY version of Voltron built out of an old passenger van combined wth the Millenium Falcon and the salvaged pieces of an ice-cream cart. Throw in some pop-culture puns. Sprinkle liberally with inuendo. Bake at 42 degrees until furry and you’ve got the receipe for the greatest parade contraption ever created by this amazing conglomeration of drunken nerds!

The interior of the Mothership will host a magnificent mobile shrine to the Krewe’s namesake, the absurd union of the god Bacchus and Chewbacca the Wookiee… Chewbacchus.

IMPORTANT PARADE DATES AND DEADLINES

OTHER NOTES: Bring plenty of snacks and some non-alcoholic beverages. The Line-up Party is super-fun but you don’t want to get hammered before we roll or you won’t make it to the end.

PLEASE: NO GLASS OF ANY KIND on the Parade route!

LEAVE NO TRACE: We work hard to be a “Leave No Trace” Parade. Please police your own trash. Bring a bag for your cans, wrappers, malfunctioning costume parts, etc and help us be the cleanest, greenest Parade in the galaxy.

ALL HAIL OUR SACRED DRUNKEN WOOKIEE! BOW TO THE Revel Alliance!
