Rex ~ King of Carnival
Rex Proclamations
  Since the founding of the Rex Organization in 1872 its traditions have helped define Mardi Gras. Rex's Proclamation invites his subjects to the grand celebration of Carnival.
The 2017 Rex Proclamation, created by well-known New Orleans artist Cleland Powell, references Carnival celebrations around the beautiful landscape of Rex’s Winter Capital, Louisiana.
   His royal colors of purple, green, and gold are to this day the colors of Mardi Gras, and the song played in the first Rex ;parade, "If Ever I Cease to Love," has become Carnival's anthem.

Rex Bulletins
   Since the founding of the Rex Organization in 1872 its traditions have helped define Mardi Gras. During the "Golden Age" of Carnival, Parade Bulletins were published to give the public a glimpse of parade themes and float designs. This tradition was renewed in 2002.
The 2017 Rex Parade Bulletin presents the designs of the floats illustrating this year’s theme, “Carnival Fêtes and Feasts.”
