Laissez les bon temps roulez! Who’s ready to let the good times roll? The Flutter FETTI crew certainly is! While we love any reason to celebrate, Mardi Gras is one of our favorite holidays. Where else can people experience centuries-old traditions mixed with mind-blowing merriment? Grab a slice of King Cake, throw (several dozen) beads around your neck, fill your pockets with some 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks, and enhance your Mardi Gras fun by using Flutter FETTI products to help celebrate the season!
Mardi Gras season kicked off on January 6th and is in full swing. Pace yourself, you’re in for a wild ride as the party continues with more than 50 parades rolling throughout various neighborhoods in February.
Wondering what exactly is a Krewe? According to our good friends at Wikipedia, “A Krewe (pronounced in the same way as “crew”) is an organization that puts on a parade or ball for the Carnival season.” These are the awesomely talented people who work on the floats and costumes. If you’re lucky, a member of the Krewe will toss you some beads or a gold doubloon as they float on by. Be on the lookout for one of our 18” Airless Launchers showering parade goers with purple green and yellow Flutter FETTI.
Here’s a sneak peek inside a few of the Krewes we’d love to hop aboard.
Krewe of Bacchus Whether you favor a refreshing cup of grape juice or a rich merlot, the Krewe of Bacchus doesn’t disappoint. Celebrities including Will Ferrell, William Shatner, and New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees have portrayed Bacchus, the Greek god of wine. We certainly can see William Shatner shouting “Beam Me Up!” with an Master Blaster in hand shooting out 2” X 40’ tissue Streamers over the crowds. With over 25 floats (yes 25!), including several super floats, the Krewe of Bacchus is a must see.
Krewe of Zulu: The Krewe of Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club is well known to parade goers for throwing coconuts (called ‘Golden Nugget’) into the crowd. Good Luck being one of the lucky ones who can catch one! One of the earliest and still the most prominent of the African-American social clubs, the Krewe of Zulu draws huge crowds.
Krewe of Rex: All hail King! The Krewe of Rex rolls right after the Krewe of Zulu. Wondering why the official Mardi Gras colors are purple, green, and gold? The honor goes to the Krewe of Rex in creating this tradition. Don’t be left out as Rex rolls by… Our 14” Swisher Mardi Gras Confetti Tube coordinates perfectly with his highness! The tube contains purple, green, and yellow tissue Flutter FETTI, a noisemaker, and purple, green, and gold metallic pompoms at the opposite end of the tube.
