NEW ORLEANS — Krewe du Vieux made it's annual eye-raising march through the Marigny and French Quarter.
This year's parade official theme was "The City of Yes, Yes, Oh God Yes," a reference to New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell's logo for the city.
Given the nature of the parade, Krewe du Vieux is always an event that news crews we have to shoot creatively for FCC censorship reasons.
The year's krewes' floats poked fun at some of the biggest talkers over the past year, like the NFL, crime cameras, drainage problems and Supreme Court hearings.

New Orleans historians say Carnival's early days were full of this type of satire but many have gotten away from the practice on this level -- with the exception of Krewe du Vieux.
Even with the politically-packed floats, most people said there were just excited to share in the fun with friends and get into the season.
The Krewe du Vieux was the first to parade after Hurricane Katrina.
