Thoth’s serpentine route, which snakes through Uptown and brings the huge, colorful parade in front of more than a dozen hospitals and institutions, has made it a favorite for generations. With more than 1,500 members, this all-male krewe was founded in 1947, and is named after the Egyptian god of wisdom and the moon. Thoth’s captain and officers ride on horseback, and the krewe is known for its standout king and title floats.  Check out the web site for some neat archival photos of parades and balls from years past.
