Sunday, SUNday, SUNDAY!
Additional details about this weekend’s chance to exercise your Kingly (or Queenly, or Mafioso) privilege and ROLL!
1. The parade is a 2.1 mile loop, twice. This means it begins and ends near the parking lot (at the convention center) where we’ll be staging, AND we have permission to park in this lot. I’m not sure we’ve ever had parking this convenient for a parade.
2. There will be FOOD and “OTHER Refreshments” available at lineup.
3. It’s IMPORTANT to run your scooters, both gas and electric, a few times throughout the year as a maintenance task. Take advantage of this awesome opportunity to do so along with fellow Elvi, Mafia and Priscillas!
4. Throws are available at the Krewe online store and Mama-E has offered to deliver anything purchased to the parade. We can’t make it much easier to participate!
So come on out and ROLL! because, you know, that’s what we do. Emailpresident@rollingelvi.org to RSVP ASAP – and let me know if you are on a gas or electric scooter please.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
A “mini” parade is a perfect way to end Father’s Day, right?! The National Charter School Association Conference is being held in New Orleans this year, and they are organizing a little “Welcome to New Orleans” parade for the 5000+ attendees. They’ve asked us to get involved to
to share the awesomeness that is NOLA, parading, and the Elvi.
The organization has secured 11 floats and 350 riders, so while the parade will be a short distance it will have quite a lot of folks participating. They’ve reached out to a couple of other groups as well, so this should turn out to be a great way to wrap up Father’s day. Lineup isn’t until 5:30 PM, so there’s plenty of time to get your BBQ on and still make it. And for those of you who bring an appetite, there will be some refreshments.
For those of you signed up, expect an announcement this week about lineup location and food details, and thank you so much for participating. For those of you who haven’t… come on and join the fun!
Day: June 21st (Sunday, and it is Father’s Day)

As the date approaches we will get a little more information about logistics, FREE FOOD, possible throws ideas, and exact meetup details, but for now, if you have any interest in participating, please let me know by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. I am really hoping we can turn out in numbers to represent our city and our Krewe, and have a great time doing so! TYVM
