Krewe of Acadiana

"HIT PARADE"

KREWE OF ACADIANA, INC.

HIT PARADE RIDE - 2013

Good Afternoon Riders:

What better way to celebrate our Acadiana than to include a parade ride for two in the "Indepndent Parade" on Tuesday, February 12, 2013! This ride is part of your membership dues. We have put together information and details for you to enjoy your membership ride that you have signed up for. Here they are:

.....Meet your float at Vermilionville (across from Laf., Airport) no later than 10:00 a.m. on Parade Day.

.....You will then load your beads/throws onto the float.

....Ice, bottled water, cokes & sprite will be provided by your Krewe. Please bring your own adult beverages and personal food. Keep your personal belongings to a minimum. The Float is for everyone on board. Float Riders must behave in a sociably acceptable manner. Any rider in violation is subject to being removed from the Parade.

.....Remember, the Krewe of Acadiana encourages you and your business to network with your throws, parade attire, signs, whatever you can conjure up to advertise your business during this 4 mile route of the parade. We discourage "candy/food" thrown. This is messy and dissapointing to the thousands lined up along the parade route.

.....If you have guest or employees that would like to participate in the parade ride, there is an extra charge of $100.00 per person. These names and monies must be turned in by Friday, January 18, 2013. Please snail mail your check payment to the Krewe P. O. Box 53726, Lafayette, La. 70505. The float is filling up......Please make your own arrangements to be picked up around the Cajun Field area (parade ends here). More information on the exact drop off is forthcoming.

We encourage you to purchase your beads and throws from either "Beads for Less" located at 3125 W. Pinhook Road in Lafayette (Phone - 337-230-4444) or "Crystal Cottage" located at 4607 Johnston Street in Lafayette (Phone - 337-981-431). Both of these businesses are Krewe Members.

Beads for Less will be open on Sunday, January 20, 2013 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. for a Krewe of Acadiana night and will offer a 10% discount at that time/day only. Please arrive promptly to enjoy your savings. They will also have our Krewe Signature/Logo Beads and Flag Beads for purchase on this day. Stock up!!

We will be mailing you a copy of The Greater Southwest Louisiana' Mardi Gras Association's Rules & Regulations that you must sign and return before Parade Date. This is a requirement by Southwest for your ride.

Any questions or concerns, please respond back. You can also call Don Landry (337) 298-0978 for more information.
