Catch the Krewe around town for our annual Trolley Gras! Trolley Gras is our homage to the Phunny Phorty Phellows who bring in carnival season by taking over trolley cars in New Orleans on January 6th. The tradition goes back to the beginning of Louisiana Mardi Gras in the 1800’s.
It’s also the Winter Light Festival weekend at OMSI. Look for the Krewe in the Lantern Parade!
The Krewe returns downtown for a second line parade with the Brass Roots Movement concluding at Social Hour with Portland Center Stage! We’ll be there from 1-2pm today
Please join us before the afternoon matinee of “A Streetcar Named Desire”. More info: https://www.pcs.org/blog/social-hour-with-mysti-krewe-of-nimbus
