This year, they are celebrating thirty years with the theme "Mona's Magical History Tour". The krewe prides itself on celebrating and promoting the arts and good humor. This is apparent during their parade with live jazz and brass bands marching along parade participants wearing handmade costumes. Their signature throw is a moon pie.
