KreweDCM is a Halloween Parade Krewe and Marching Club in Austin, TX. For the past four years, we have staged one of a kind mobile Halloween spectacles for the citizens of Austin.  Inspired by and in honor of New Orleanian parade traditions, KreweDCM has evolved into its own special Austin-ized Halloween Hybrid event--a true one of a kind experience ANYONE can help make happen.  Our 2011 project is a circus themed parade designed to heighten the fun and elevate the pageantry of Halloween on 6th Street and throughout downtown Austin.

The KreweDCM "Circus of the 7 Dawns" Halloween Parade will feature a combination of costumed circus krewe members, marching bands, multiple large scale circus animal puppets, a mobile big top circus tent, and more! Everything will be hand built by local artists specifically for the parade on Halloween night--Monday October 31, 2011.

Your Kickstarter support goes directly to help us build our giant puppets, big top tent, throws, battery operated lighting, pay for our multiple necessary City permits, insurance, and police escorts. The biggest percentage of our Kickstarter goal (roughly 70%) will go immediately to cover our necessary permit and insurance needs.

Any pledge amount helps, but please consider the $17 Membership Pledge level.  Membership guarantees you (or your sponsee) a one-of-a-kind experience marching Halloween night with KreweDCM's  'Circus of the 7 Dawns', the Only Circus of Its Kind In the World!!
