"Krewe of Endymion" Mardi Gras Tip by maestrousmc

Mardi Gras, New Orleans: 38 reviews and 45 photos

Perhaps the parade with the longest route, Endymion could possibly be one of the largest Parades in New Orleans. Though New Orleaneans have strong opinions on which parade is above all, none can argue that this Super-Krewe provides the quintessential Mardi Gras Parade experience. "Endymion gets its name from the like-named figure of Greek mythology, the most handsome of men and the god of youth and fertility. First parading in 1967, Endymion quickly emerged as one of Carnival's 'Super-Krewes' in 1974 with the inclusion of more floats and celebrity guests."
