Carnival’s most popular canine krewe, Barkus, draws animal lovers to the French Quarter each year for a one of a kind parade experience.  This year’s theme is “Dogzilla: Barkus Licks the Crescent City.”  Look for dogs and dog owners in all sorts of creative costumes, designed to match the krewe’s always-clever theme.  According to the krewe web site, Barkus’ Queen is selected by secret ballot and announced only weeks before the parade, and is always a rescued or adopted female dog.  Every year the krewe donates the proceeds of the parade registration fees, merchandise sales, and ball profits to animal welfare groups.
