1. This krewe’s title float, at left, has cannons that shoot confetti. Hint: There’s no ‘krewe’ in the name.

2. This krewe has a queen but no king and is named for a historical figure rather than a mythological character. Hint: One word — asp.

3. It makes perfect sense that a glitter apple medallion is the 30th anniversary throw for this krewe. Hint: It rolls in Mandeville.

4. A riderless float depicting a sword being drawn from a stone leads this parade. Hint: The krewe is named after the sword, not its eventual owner.

5. The oldest St. Tammany krewe to throw both a ball and a parade, the identity of the king is kept secret. Hint: Think athletics.
