Phorty Phunny Phellows on Twelfth Night

The Phunny Phorty Phellows proclaimed the start of the Carnival season with the usual streetcar ride on Twelfth Night. Photographer Jason Kruppa was there to capture the revelry.

The PPP follows the annual ride with a coronation ball, where a new Boss and Queen are chosen by the traditional king cake method. The Storyville Stompers is the official band for the Streetcar Ride and Benny Grunch and the Bunch play at the Coronation Ball.
