Krewe of Chewbacchus

February 9, 2013

The Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus is a Sci Fi themed parade width over 400 dues paying members and a dozen homemade parade contraptions. The krewe's ball, the CHEWBACCHANAL, takes place at the Howling Wolf at 907 S. Peters St.

All of the krewe's parade contraptions are either pushed, pedaled, or pulled, and are built onto bicycles, homemade trailers, and shopping carts.  Chewbacchus believes that Green parades are the "Future of Revelry"  and does not use internal combustion engines to power its floats.  The mad scientists who engineer the krewe's contraptions have found lots of clever ways to build amazing floats that don't require petroleum products for propulsion.
 
The Krewe of Chewbacchus also makes all of its own throws and has created hundreds of elaborately decorated bandoliers, bean bags, frisbees, stuffed animals, and even developed a method this year for casting their own custom bead medallions.  This year's custom homemade beads include gold-flake infused translucent R2D2s, robots, flying saucers, and glittery crystal skulls.
 
The Krewe of Chewbacchus is seeking new members and is open to everyone.  Any and ALL Sci Fi costumes and themes are welcome.

The king of the 2013 parade will be none other than Peter Mayhew, the British actor who played Chewbacca in the original Star War movies.
