Video: Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus parade from Mardi Gras 2013

Mardi Gras 2013 may be a distant, blurry memory for its hardcore celebrants, so NolaVie contributor Glen Abbott offers a sober look back at one of the season's funkier parades.

The motto of the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus is "Saving the Galaxy, One Drunken Nerd at a Time."

Enjoy!
