‘tit Rex Parade

We have family in from Ohio this week and they wanted to see a parade. I’m really not one for the huge production and really don’t like large crowds of people so we went to a “petite” parade.

Here is the description of the parade from the MardiGradsNewOrleans site.

‘tit Rəx takes an opposite approach focusing instead of on massive floats that take up entire blocks, the ‘tit Rəx floats are made out shoeboxes that look like full size floats.

tit Rəx is New Orleans first and only MicroKrewe. A group of artists, business people, teachers, workers and bon vivants founded ‘tit Rəx in 2009 in a response to the super krewes constantly setting records for floats, throws and extravagance.

The parade’s name comes from the Cajun abbreviation of petite, used as a prefix before the name of the smaller or younger of two people who share a first name.

Fun for all and lots to see 🙂
