The Krewe of OAK holds its annual Mid Summer Mardi Gras celebration in the Carrollton neighborhood. Costumed revelers, OAK members and marching groups including the Bearded Oysters, Muff-A-Lottas and Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus gather at the Maple Leaf Bar at 7 p.m. Following a commemoration of the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina (the 2005 parade was two nights before the storm made landfall), King Robustus XXIX and Queen Rachael will toast the crowd and lead the procession to Palmer Park, where a brass band will perform. The party then returns to Oak Street.
