THIS KREWE HAS CANCELLED THEIR PARADE FOR
the Latin word for eagle, this popular Metairie krewe boasts some of
the most beautiful court costumes in Mardi Gras.
Since its inception, Aquila has grown to feature 10 double-decker
floats by Blaine Kern, the Zapp's Calliope Fire Truck, and Al
Copeland's boat float. So proud are the Aquilans of their annual
tableau ball that they will restage it again later in the year for
visitors to the city.
