The parades of Elks Orleans and Crescent City sent a near-constant stream of families, friends and organizations with their decorated trucks to follow Zulu and Rex on Mardi Gras Day (Feb. 28), offering watchers their final chance of Carnival 2017 to load up on beads, stuffed animals and other trinkets. 

The two parades featured dozens upon dozens of trucks, drivers of which would blasting their horns as children made the arm-pumping signal to sound the alarms.
