I started the Krewe of Red Beans Parade as an homage not only to the New Orleans culinary tradition of Red Beans & Rice, but to the Mardi Gras Indians and second-line parades. It’s all about co-mingling all the different influences of the city. Krewe members must create a new bean costume each year. We’re now sponsored by Camellia Brand – they supply all of our beans! We march on Lundi Gras (the Monday before Mardi Gras) every year.
