Beginning in 1899 and continuing for 16 years, Houston had an event in the same vein as New Orleans’ Mardi Gras. Parades, balls, college football games, and a carnival midway highlighted the fall season NoTsuOh festivities. Downtown buildings were bedecked with electric lights, people sported outrageous costumes, horse-drawn buggies, and then automobiles were smothered in flowers.  Backward spelling was part of the event’s charm. NoTsuOh, for example, is Houston spelled backward.

King Nottoc XX, Justice Ken Wise, Queen Ailongam IV, Sara Wise and Chairs, C.C. and Duke Ensell will once again make NoTsuOh the signature annual party in Houston, celebrating our history, culture, enterprise and spirit.
