Photos: Carrie Fisher Tribute Parade Brings The Force to New Orleans

Following in the footsteps of those who second lined for David Bowie and Prince, New Orleans’ Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus organized a parade for one of 2016’s final victims: Carrie Fisher.

While the seemingly new tradition of putting on tribute parades for deceased celebrities has, justifiably, left some in the community uneasy, those concerns did not stop hundreds of revelers from having a good time in the Bywater on Friday evening. After all, if anyone is prepared to honor Princess Leia it’s the Star Wars fanatics of the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus.

Caitlyn Ridenour was on hand to capture some photos of the party.
