Party and parades in the Crescent City: night march by the Krewe of Ancient Druids

Writes our friend Chris, leader of the New Orleans marching society known as the Skeleton Krewe, "This photo was snapped in one of those magical Carnival moments, being at the right place at the right time. The Druids apparently were dropped off in the wrong location and had to walk in masks to their floats. This added a feeling of what early Carnival really was like."

The Ancient Druids was founded in 1998 in Uptown New Orleans. It is a parade-only Krewe. Membership is limited to 200 members. Ruled by The Archdruid whose identity is never revealed
