The New Orleans Mardi Gras parade, which dates back to 1857, was originally many celebrations put on by different groups in the city, called krewes, which now raise their own funds and decorate their own floats for the main parade.
Membership in some krewes is passed down through families. The name krewe is thought to have been coined by one of the first groups, which called itself the Mistick Krewe of Comus.
