Parade on Sunday, June 21st5:30PM

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)
Time: 5:30pm line-up, parade at 6pm
Location: Tchoup down Henderson then left on Convention Center Blvd to Poydras
Who: Costumed Krewe members on scooters (this means Mafia too), Priscillas on foot
Throws: Encouraged!  And for sale in the store on

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:  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
