no, they will not parade again. A good friend of mine's dad was in comus - and back when Dorothy Mae's rule passed and was first implemented - he and his brother - were both kinda glad - because they did not like parading.
Parading was but a small part of the krewe's existence. My friend is now in and he has no interest in parading. I am pretty certain the other two comusites I know in my age group feel the same way.
It's a shame because, they in effect shaped what mardi gras became.
i do agree that comus shaped what mardi gras became, but mardi gras passed comus by (at least the parading part)
it was very evident to me from the first time i saw comus come round st charles ave onto canal that the membership didn't seem like they were into parading (and this was 1966!!!!!!!)
organizations like muses, tucks, thoth, and d'etat are a lot more fun to watch than comus ever was....could you see comus having marching units like the elvii, the 9th ward marching band, or the camel toes....much less the 610 stompers!!!!
then for sheer spectacle, the super krewes can't be beat (shameless plug for the new endymion ponchatrain beach float here
