About The Fools

Witnessing the absence of proper Twelfth Night merrymaking on the Northshore, the St. John Fools of Misrule was formed to announce the arrival of the Carnival season to St. Tammany Parish. The organization’s rituals are derived from an ancient English men’s group that clamored along the evening streets creating unruliness with cowbells and whips while delivering jeers and spankings to those caught on the street unaware. The Fools of Misrule integrated into its name homage to the historic St. John District of old Covington (1813) where the group was founded and annually conducts its bawdy procession
