The is launching their 2013 mission with Alien Beach Party 2 at Tipitina’s Uptown on Saturday, July 21st at 9pm. The krewe has big plans for the upcoming year including: a Chewbacchus Base Camp at Voodoofest, an Art Bicycle Contest in November, appearances at Wizard World Comic Con, collaborations with several other DIY krewes, and more. Like all rapidly evolving alien entities, we are making some major changes and upgrades to our parade this year, says Overlord MC Ghetto Fett.

The Krewe of Chewbacchus is once again inviting Peter Mayhew (the actor who plays Chewbacca) to be the King of Chewbacchus 2013. They are raising funds through Kickstarter to build a Millenium Falcon Double Love-seat Golf Cart for him and his wife to ride in the parade. This contraption will be driven by a lucky krewe member dressed as Han Solo, of course.

Alien Beach Party 2 features special guest emcee Dr. Xavier Jenks of the New Orleans Bigfoot Society (N.O.B.S.) with his assistant, the City Park Sasquatch. All forms of intergalactic beachwear and costumes are encouraged.

Entertainment at the event includes: Local Skank, Mighty Wookiee Fiyoship with DJ SpyC, , , , and performances by the Vajar Jar Binks Dance Team. And pay attention, folks, we’ll be giving two pairs of tickets away for this on our Facebook page on Thursday, July 19th!

Presented by Secret Moonbase in collaboration with Spectacle Productions and sponsored by Sailor Jerry Rum and Pabst Blue Ribbon.
