The Krewe of Krampus rolled out this past weekend for its Christmas-season parade.
According to the krewe’s website, “In keeping with a true European Krampuslauf, known as a Krampus run, the Krewe will maintain many of the traditions found in Alpine villages.” Naturally, as a New Orleans outfit, there’s some local flavor, too. “While dark, earthy, and scary are a huge part of a Krampuslauf, we want to put a New Orleans twist on things. Think gloomy and frightening meets bright and funky.”
Kim Welsh was on site to capture the naughty, nice and ridiculous costumes. Below, check out her photos and see if you can spot the goat-like travel companion of St. Nick.
