Since 2015, the Krewe of the Lustful Lushes has thrown the finest beads in all of Mardi Gras—including the famed Auntie M’s coveted creations—from upper windows around Soulard. For 2022, our sixty-member crew is stepping up our game with our new location above Historic Crossroads, directly on the parade route, where we will throw our fortune of finery out of the six upper windows all day long.
A wide variety of quality beads will be bestowed, from the large pearls the krewe is known for, to environmentally-friendly strands of glass and wood. Artisan creations from Auntie M and Ken Snyders will also drop.
Amid confetti cannons, the colorful krewe members will work to entertain the crowd, with appearances from the Maven of Mardi Gras and drag diva Janessa Markstone-Mornett Highland. Members will also make appearances in the crowd, where interesting bead trading negotiations may occur.
7th and Ann will be a delightful location to enjoy the reimagined parade, so please stop by our windows and let us hook you up. The krewe’s got you.
