Carnival’s fourth oldest parading group was founded 75 years ago by the Westside Social and Carnival Club and presented its inaugural parade with a single float on Fat Tuesday, 1933. The all-male krewe takes its name from an abbreviation of Algiers, Louisiana – the New Orleans westbank community through which it travels. Alla staged 10 river parades and nearly 30 tableau balls at the Municipal Auditorium before reorganizing under the auspices of the Golden Gryphon Society in 1978. Alla traditionally presents the largest parade on the westbank.
