Founded in 1996, the Krewe of lucky stars has celebrated every Mardi Gras season since then. The krewe is informal in dress and its members, consisting of students past and present, pass a good time every year at the annual Krewe Ball. One of the trade marks of this krewe is its famous jazz wag. Each year they are different in some respect. Members of the Krewe wave them as they do the second line behind the Krewe Captain and the Krewe umbrella. This year the Krewe will celebrate 22 years. Krewe date is January 27, 2017.
