No Joke: Krewe du Fool Will Roll April 1

Mardch 12 2024

Little Freddie King will be the Grand Marshall of the 2024 Krewe du Fool

April Fool’s Day Parade on Monday, April 1. The “Blues King of New Orleans” will be joined by The Revel Force Brass Band as well as the Thurgood Marshall Marching Band and, of course, The Krewe du Fool. The parade will begin at Royal Street and Franklin Avenue at 7 p.m. on Easter Monday.

Led by Darryl "Dancing Man 504" Young, The Krewe du Fool first began parading in 2017, feeling there was a need to fill the void between Carnival and the height of festival season. This krewe should not be confused with the Krewe of Fools, a marching group that parades in the French Quarter on Lundi Gras, or the Carnival Fools, another walking parade that appeared on the scenes for the first time in 2022.
