The krewes of Hermes, d’Etat and Morpheus rounded out a long Friday evening of parades along the Uptown parade route.

Earlier in the evening, Muses and Babylon took to the streets after being rescheduled Thursday night due to high winds.

Krewe d’Etat took aim at local and national satire this year. The theme was “The Dic Goes to Mardi Gras.” This krewe is led by a Dictator instead of a king. From headlines here at home to across the country, the Krewe targeted it all this year.

Morpheus, in its 20 year rolling, was themed ““Morpheus Dreams of Aquatic Adventures.”
