Krewe of Krampus is a whimsical mix of colors between green, red, white, and a greenish teal. This Christmas mix is just a unique as the parade it is named after.
Only in New Orleans would you find such a mix of cultures blending their age-old traditions.
In keeping with a true European Krampuslauf, known as a Krampus run, the Krewe will maintain many of the traditions found in Alpine villages. Our evening parade or Krampuslauf will be lead by Krampus, complete with switches, and Saint Nicholas accompanied by a host of other creatures and folklore legends like Frau Perchta (The Frau), Yule Cat, Knecht Ruprecht, Belsnickel, and others (Y’ules) and our Halloween character (Swampus).
