    Posted on by Support Team

    New Orleans, LA (1-10-19) -- Mystic Krewe of Barkus, the only officially licensed Mardi Gras Krewe for canines, will bring together the largest convention of dog nerds and associated extroverts to the theme "The Big Bark Theory: Barkus Goes to Comic Con" while taking to the streets of French Quarter on Sunday, February 24, 2019 at 2pm. 

    Whether intellectually gifted, socially awkward or super hero street smart, all types are welcome to join in the revelry. Although many will certainly bring their A+ game that day, others non-academic geek varieties of canines can come as they are to add to the fun and revelry known as the Krewe of Barkus parade.     

    Dogs who want to be members of the krewe and lack access to the internet should get their humans to register on line at www.barkus.org. On parade day, there is pre-pawty parade and post-pawty parade at Armstrong Park from 10:30am to 5:30pm. The parade starts promptly at 2pm and follows a 15-block route through the Vieux Carré, stopping at the VIP Reviewing Stand at Good Friends Bar, corner Dauphine and St. Ann, where VIPs will toast the Royal Court. Curious observers are welcome to come watch the parade.    

     

    All proceeds from Barkus, a non-profit organization founded by Wood Enterprises, benefit animal organizations in New Orleans and the Gulf South area. For more information, visit www.barkus.org or e-mail info@barkus.org.

  • Krewe of Barkus Press Release 2016

    Posted on by Ashton Harris

    Krewe of Barkus Press Release

    Media Contact: Catherine Olivier/504.559.8522


    New Orleans, LA (1-11-16) -- Politics is going to the dogs with the Mystic Krewe of Barkus, the only officially licensed Mardi Gras Krewe for canines, with the theme "2016: From the Dog House to the White House." Countless canine candidates are expected to emerge as possible leaders of the most powerful country on Earth as they parade on Sunday, January 31, 2016.  


    While some dream of curling up on a couch in the Oval Office like Howllary Clinton or Donald the Dog Trump, others might want to embody any of many political pundits sniffing out the obvious such as James Pawville, Sean Hannitail or Glenn Bark. Of course, the political media will be celebrated in honor of all the dirt they dig up with the likes of Judy Woodruffruff, Chuck Waggin' Todd and Wolf Wuff Blizter.       


    The bi-ped world of Washington is soon to include the wonderful wags of the formerly under represented canine population. No matter what the polls might say, the next head of state might be a that of a Lab, Poodle, Pug or previously homeless mutt. It will no longer matter if you know who your parents are or if you have any formal education, much less Ivy League, to be elected. It is certain to be the most street small pack ever in power.     


    Dogs who want to be members of the krewe should get their humans to register on line at www.barkus.org. On parade day, we will be staging the parade, pre-pawty parade and post-pawty parade at Armstrong Park starting at 10:30am. The parade starts promptly at 2pm and follows a 15-block route through the Vieux Carré, stopping at the VIP Reviewing Stand at Good Friends Bar, corner Dauphine and St. Ann, where VIPs (and those who desire to be VIPs) will toast the Royal Court. Curious observers are welcome to come watch the parade.       


    All proceeds from Barkus, a non-profit organization founded by Wood Enterprises, benefit animal organizations in New Orleans and the Gulf South area. For more information, visit www.barkus.org or e-mail info@barkus.org.
