The King of KdV for 2010 will be hisself the music legend Dr. John, with Priestess Miriam Chamani reigning as Queen. In typical KdV fashion this years theme "All Fired Up" is in reference to the August 4 fire that caused damage to the KdV den. Here’s a list of the Krewe du Vieux sub krewes, with their 2010 smoking themes: Rue du Bourbon ..................... Bourbon Puts a Spell on You Comatose ...............................

Showcasing the local brass band talent is one of the many Krewe du Vieux traditions. The Krewe du Vieux is a non-profit organization dedicated to the historical and traditional concept of a Mardi Gras parade as a venue for individual creative expression and satirical comment. It is unique among all Mardi Gras parades in the city because it alone carries on the old traditions of Carnival celebrations, by using decorated mule-drawn floats with satirical themes, accompanied by costumed revelers dancing in the streets to the sounds of jazzy street musicians. We believe in exposing the world to the true nature of Mardi Gras—and in exposing ourselves to the world. When: 6:30 pm, Saturday, Jan. 30, 2010 (You are asked to please start your drinking early!) Where: Faubourg Marigny and French Quarter. Check KdV website at http://www.kreweduvieux.org for more information. Don't forget to put your butt's out. Laissez Le Bon Temps Roulet!

Krewe du Vieux is made up of several different small krewes and they each have their own theme. Some of the sub krewes are, the Krewe of C.R.U.D.E., Krewe of Underwear, Seeds of Decline, Krewe of Mama Roux, Krewe of L.E.W.D., Krewe of K.A.O.S., Krewe de C.R.A.P.S., Mystic Krewe of Spermes, Krewe of Comatose, Mystic Krewe of Inane, and Krewe du Mishigas. It is one of the very few parades allowed to roll through the French Quarter, possibly because its floats are mule or human drawn. (There's a rumor going around town that the Captain of the Krewe du Vieux brings golden doughnuts to the French Quarter police station every year to ensure the route remains the same, but so far I have been unable to verify that. In fact, there are new rumors that a "Mysterious New Route" will be announced. We shouldn’t missed it to the world even if the heads of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists at the University of Chicago will reset the Doomsday Clock. Currently, we're at 5 minutes to midnight (midnight representing utter disaster such as nuclear war) and we've never been closer than 2 minutes to midnight. It only gets moved when the Bulletin sees fit – so you can't get a couple payday loans and get them to induce panic. The Doomsday Clock, for those that missed it, was established in the late 1940s at the beginning of the Cold War when Russia became the second nuclear power in the world, and things took a turn.
