A folk-art parade of amazing bean suits, one of the 10 best art experiences in new orleans (times picayune).
Every year a group of dedicated carnival enthusiasts make costumes using beans and hot-glue. The suits are beautiful, meticulous, and elaborate.
Come lundi gras (monday before mardi gras day), we assemble with the Treme Brass Band and hold a parade in the Marigny, Treme, and French Quarter neighborhoods in New Orleans.
Our parade is inclusive. Our parade keeps the traditions of the city in mind. Our parade is fun!
A kickstarter fundraiser has been created because the founder of the parade (devin) is moving away. To ensure that the parade continues it is very important that all of the expenses of the parade can be guaranteed. This will also help us transition to being a permanent part of Carnival in New Orleans.
