Do all Krewe build their own floats?

A lot of Mardi Gras Krewes build their own original floats each year. That's all part of the fun of being on a Krewe. The Krewe of Aquarius makes all their floats. Since our floats will be used only once, we have greater flexibility with the subject matter we want our parades to portray. Float designs are quite faithful to the overall parade theme. Some Krewes (especially in New Orleans) select from a pool of rental floats, or use the same floats year after year, and their themes tend to be generic in nature.
