  • The Krewe of the Mystic Inane parades with Krewe du Vieux.

Tomorrow is Twelfth Night, and Krewe du Vieux has announced details of its 2018 parade, which will roll in the Marigny and French Quarter at 6:30 p.m. Sat. Jan. 27.

In keeping with the krewe's rigorous adherence to good taste, this year's theme will be "Bienville's Wet Dream." The usual KdV subkrewes (Krewe of C.R.U.D.E., Krewe of SPANK, Krewe of Underwear, Krewe of L.E.W.D., Krewe of Drips and Discharges, etc. etc.) each will interpret the theme with their own special flourishes.

New Orleans geographer and historian Richard Campanella will be 2018's grand marshal.

This year's parade will take a different route, staging in the Marigny and staggering around the French Quarter before ending at the old Ralph & Kacoo's (519 Toulouse St.). The krewe's annual ball will be held there, with entertainment by Khris Royal and the Big Booty Express with guests Big Sam and Erica and the Morning 40 Federation. Doors open at 10 p.m. and tickets are $50.
