Founded in 1947, the trucks in the Crescent City parade hold over 3,000 male and female riders.
The trucks each represent a different Carnival organization. The krewe sets no overall theme for their units, with each float bearing its own title and theme. The Krewe of Crescent City follows the Krewe of Elks-Orleans and is the last truck parade in the Orleans Parish. The krewe signals the official "beginning of the end" of Carnival.
