On Sunday afternoon four parades rolled along the uptown route, Mystic Krewe of Femme Fatale, Krewe of Carrollton, Krewe of King Arthur and Krewe of Alla. Femme Fatale sought thrill with their theme “The Mystic Krewe of Femme Fatale Visits Theme Parks.” Carrollton rolled with the theme “A Krewe for All Seasons,” each float representing a time of year. King Arthur kept things secret with the theme “King Arthur’s Classified Information.” Alla got in touch with their patriotic side, rolling with the theme “A Salute to American Icons.”
