Zulu King

Unlike any of the other New Orleans carnival krewes, the Zulu King is elected. Other krewes appoint their King and Queens, while the Zulu process includes a campaign complete with barbecues and bumper stickers to earn votes. The King’s court is also elected and includes the Big Shot, who tries to upstage the King.
