Members of Krewe D'Etat march down Magazine St. dressed like Day of the Dead skeletons in the parade Friday night. This year's theme entitled "D'Etat's Wild World of Sports" had 21 floats, with over 430 members. Krewe D'Etat is a pun on "coup d'etat", which means to take over a ruling party by an outside force.

  1. These are fantastic photos from the “Krewe D’Etat” parade! Thanks for sharing them. The “Featherweight” and “Lil’ Wayne” floats look terrific! I like the Day of the Dead skeleton costumes.

  2. That’s a great name for a krew!! Wish I was there, but I’m stuck in Myrtle Beach!
