Krewe of Barkus 2017: See photos from the French Quarter Mardi Gras parade

The Krewe of Barkus padded its way through the French Quarter on Sunday (Feb. 19) in what is surely one of the most adorable parades of the Mardi Gras season. The theme was "Pirates of the Crescent City: Barkus Tells Tales of Jean Lafleabag.''

The first Barkus krewe meeting was held Jan. 25, 1993.
