Mardi Gras, Parades

All hail the sacred drunken wookiee! The Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus jumps Carnival to lightspeed

Raaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwrrrrrrrr! That’s Shryiiwook (Wookiee speak) for “ALL HAIL THE SACRED DRUNKEN WOOKIEE!” (I may have made that up. My Wookiee speak isn’t what it used to be.)

The Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus marched through the Marigny for its annual parade Saturday. Scores of nerds clad in costumes of comic book characters, cartoons, science fiction and fantasy strutted their fandom through the streets at impulse speed. We sent photographer Matthew Hinton into the galaxy not so far, far away to get images. No Bothans died bringing us these pics — we think.
