Louisiana | New Orleans | Carnival | Mardi Gras | Parades | Krewe of Rex | Fat Tuesday | King | Lundi Gras | Gallier Hall
The King of Carnival (also known as Rex) is chosen each year by the School of Design
(frequently referred to as the Krewe of Rex). The person selected for this royal role is always a
member of the krewe who is known for their history of serving the community. J. Storey
Charbonnet is serving as the 2020 King of Carnival. Here he is sitting on a float in front of
Gallier Hall for the traditional toast to the mayor of New Orleans.

the Mayor of New Orleans during Carnival. #WordyExplorers #carnival #MardiGras
