new orleans All dogs go — to the Mardi Gras. At least they have for the past 24 Carnival seasons. The Mystic Krewe of Barkus has been rolling, or walking on all fours, since 1993. Barkus is the only Carnival parade in New Orleans dedicated especially to man’s four-legged best friends. The King and Queen are both beloved dogs of the krewe and each parade has a dog-related theme – this year the theme is “From the Dog House to the White House.” While the parade is a fun family outing, the main goal is to raise awareness for homeless animals who need forever homes. All proceeds raised from krewe memberships, donations and online purchases go to benefit Animal Rescue New Orleans, Jefferson SPCA, Humane Society of Louisiana and more. Each Barkus krewe member is allowed one human escort and those attending the parade on Feb. 19, 2017 can join the festivities at the “pre pawty” at 10:30 a.m. with the parade following at 2 p.m.
