Jewish Krewes to March on Feb. 19

In addition to the usual throws, anniversaries will be in the air for Mardi Gras groups with Jewish roots this year.

On Feb. 19, the Krewe du Mishigas will once again march in the Krewe du Vieux Parade through the French Quarter. Each of the sub-krewes in Krewe du Vieux will have a theme related to the parade’s 25th anniversary, “25 Years Wasted.” Picking up that idea, the Mishigas will parade as “Chai Ho Silver, Oy Vey!”

The parade goes through the Quarter at 6:30 p.m., and for the uninitiated, is decidedly not family-friendly due to mature — er, adult themes.

The older Jewish-themed krewe, Krewe du Jieux, will celebrate its 15th anniversary by participating in krewedelusion, which marches through the Quarter on Feb. 19 at 7:15 p.m. The Krewe will have its coronation on Feb. 12, with Jackie and Judge Sol Gothard serving as this year’s royalty. Part of the coronation night events will be the annual Running of the Jieux, a takeoff from the 2006 “Borat” film.
