by the Benevolent Protective Order of the Elks, a worldwide fraternal
society dedicated to charitable deeds. Following directly on the
heels of Argus, the arrival of the Elks-Jeffersonians provides a
near-constant stream of music and throws, all being tossed by thousands
of riders on dozens of trucks. While the truck parades are not as
ornate as the traditional floats, they are quite inventive and
exemplify the "us, too!" spirit of Mardi Gras.
The krewe's mascot Elroy the Elk, also serves as mascot for their sister krewe, the Elks-Orleanians.
