Tucks Toilet Seat Float

This signature float of the Krewe of Tucks represents the bawdy humor for which the Uptown krewe has become known. The Royal Throne float is just one of the examples of Tucks' crazy sense of humor, which has been on display since a group of Loyola University students founded the krewe in 1969, naming it after the Uptown college hangout Friar Tucks. It parades on the Uptown route at noon on Endymion Saturday, part of a huge "Super Saturday" of parading.
