What a blast!!!!
Our Krewe do Craft had a really incredible time at the Box of Wine Parade yesterday. After our Endymion permit fell through, we worried that we would would be a Krewe without a parade. It turned out to be so perfect that we were invited to march with Box of Wine.
We met at 3pm before the Bacchus route to get lined (&liquored) up for parading. We were placed behind the Black Bear Combo (from Chicago) which played great polka punk street music the whole time.
After about an hour of this getting ready we hit St Charles Avenue dancing and throwing stuff.There were so many people out! We seemed to run out of stuff at about Jackson Avenue. Just as dusk was hitting, we got to Clio Street and the street party began. A great time was had by all and we're sorry that all of our Krewe couldnt make it. Hopefully next year we'll have a bigger and group and get that float we've been planning on. Peace, beignets & Happy Mardi Gras!
