What is a Krewe?

A Krewe is an organization that puts together parades during Carnival Mardi Gras season, in other words, people with enough money to throw away in the form of plastic beads…  but fun!  http://kreweofthedruids.org

  1. Great photographs! When I was a kid they threw real Czechoslovakian glass beads (the string usually broke if it hit the ground) and aluminum doubloons. We used to take the plastic beads and melt them in cookie cutters in the oven. Stunk up the house – probably caused brain damage, too from toxic chemicals. I think I remember plastic poodles as throws, too, and candy. (That was in the 1960s BTW.)
