The Krewe of Tucks is an organization of merry makers that was founded in 1969 by a group of Loyola students. The Krewe is known for its irreverence and satirical floats. The club ultimately took its name from Friar Tuck's, an Uptown New Orleans pub where the students decided to create their own Carnival Krewe. Tucks has grown in size from a small nighttime parade of pick-up trucks to a daytime event of major proportions.
