Krewe of Krampus Found The Naughty Kids — They’re In The Bywater

Who was naughty?

by Clint Durrett | December 2, 2018

On the first night of December, Krampus, the goat-like beast who travels with Saint Nick, wasted no time in finding the naughty children of New Orleans. They were in the Bywater.

We’re sure there are more naughty folks around town, but the fun and frightening stroll through the Bywater must have been the demon’s first stop.

The tale goes that during Christmas season, Krampus punishes children who have misbehaved.

And standing among my fellow shenanigan-creating pals of the Bywater, I can attest to the misbehaving.

The parade lasted about nearly 7 minutes. We streamed it live on our Facebook page. Watch the parade below — from a safe distance.

Hi. I’m Clint.
I’m the Local Market Manager for Very Local New Orleans. I’ve lived in New Orleans since 2001 and been living my best life in this rad place since that year.
I have 10 years of broadcast journalism and digital media experience. Before Very Local New Orleans, I worked for WDSU-TV – producing, product developing, digital media managing– I’ve done it all. I’ve seen first-hand the trials we’ve suffered in this city and the celebrations we’ve enjoyed. I love New Orleans. It’s home.
I’m going to work my hardest to bring you the content and experiences you care about to live your best life here in one of the best cities on the planet.
I love finding things to do here – concerts, food, drinks, nerding out, etc. And I love sharing those things with others.
Contact me via email. Gimme a shout on social. If you see something you think we should know about, hit me up. If you see something that needs fixing on the site, ditto. I want this website to be yours, too. Not just one I manage, but one we as a community and New Orleanians use to help us live our best lives.
