N.O.B.S. is a proud part of the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus.
The Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus is a Mardi Gras parade organization for the most revelrous of Star Wars Freaks, Trekkies, Whovians, Mega-Geeks, Circuit Benders, Cryptozooligists, UFO Conspiracy Theorists, Mad Scientists, and all the rest of Super Nerdom.
Our formula is simple… Bacchanalian Revelry + Sci Fi = BacchanALIENS.
Zulu throws coconuts, Muses throw shoes, the Krewe of Chewbacchus throws a whole range of incredible homemade goodies including: amazing furry bandoliers, stenciled towels (for intrepid galactic hitchhikers), wookiee panties, handmade TARDIS beanbags, DIY beads, decorated moon pies, and more!
The Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus puts together an amazing parade each year on the Saturday before Mardi Gras and rolls through the streets of New Orleans dispensing the blessings of Our Sacred Drunken Wookiee to the masses. Then we throw an amazing party… the CHEWBACCHANAL!
Chewbacchus marches with 400+ BacchanALIEN revelers in an amazing assortment of homemade Sci-Fi costumes. We roll with several of the best brass bands in the city and an incredible array of parade contraptions including a Mayan Temple on Wheels, a King Cake Flying Saucer (with an alien baby), a “Chariot of the Gods” Mobile Disco complete with glowing crystal skulls, flapping wings, rocket thrusters and spinning propellers, a XXX-Wing tricycle, the Bar2D2 mobile keg droid, a fleet of Snowspeeders, giant puppets and much much more.
Chewbacchus is the Future of Revelry. We are DIY, homemade, homegrown, totally sustainable, GREEN to the gills, and the 1st true OPEN SOURCE parade. Any and ALL Sci Fi costumes and themes are welcome and you can build and bring basically anything you want to roll in the parade. We have only 3 simple rules re: costumes, themes, and parade contraptions…
1. No unicorns (unless they have rocket thrusters).
2. No elves (unless they are cyborgs).
3. Whinebots will be airlocked and thrown into the nearest Black Hole.
Seriously though… all parade contraptions must be pushed, pedaled, pulled or powered by electric motors (or particle propulsion). We do not use internal combustion engines to power our parade contraptions.
Chewbacchus is not just a Mardi Gras parade organization. We throw awesome parties and have incredible events throughout the year including our annual Sci Fi fashion show “Set Your Phasers to Stunning” and an Alien Beach Party every July. We also collaborate with several other organizations to roll in many other parades throughout the year.
The Krewe of Chewbacchus is always seeking new members and is OPEN to EVERYONE. Yearly membership dues are $42 (the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything) and include: costume and throw building supplies, total access to the keg in the Bar2D2, and FREE entry to the Chewbacchanal. And (of course) the envy of your peers.
Membership is half price ($21) for kids (12 and under) and is FREE for children age 3 or younger.
