  • Big Freedia has been named Krewe Du Vieux's monarch for 2016.

Krewe du Vieux holds its 30th parade Jan. 23, 2016, and the theme is Krewe du Vieux XXX. The krewe has chosen bounce artist Big Freedia as its monarch. 

The satirical and raunchy krewe's 17 subkrewes will march with floats lampooning various topical local subjects. The parade route has not been finalized but will be similar to last year's route, a krewe official says, starting in Marigny, going through the French Quarter and CBD and ending at Civic Theatre. George Porter Jr. and Runnin' Pardners with special guest Walter "Wolfman" Washington will perform at the ball. 

In addition to touring and performing, Big Freedia stars in her own reality TV show on Fuse. The channel just announced it's picking up a fifth season of the show. Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce debuted in 2013.
