No Krewe? No problem! Register as an Individual Walker for $15. Individual Walkers must dress according to categories as they will be grouped together with other Individual Walkers to form the semblance of a Walking Group. This is a great way to make new friends and start your own krewe next year!

 

 

STARTING A KREWE IN 5 STEPS

 

Step 1: People. A krewe generally requires around 20 people, one of whom must serve as the krewe captain. The captain manages and organizes the krewe.

 

Step 2: Unit. Decide as a krewe what type of unit you would like to have in the parade. See the Unit List for more info. This will determine how much your entry will cost. 

 

Step 3: Plan. Determine your krewe theme. This can be in line with the parade theme or it can be something different; however, all krewe themes must be Halloween related. All krewe members should dress according to your krewe theme and your unit should be decorated to this theme if applicable. Schedule costume making and unit decorating days. Schedule days to make your very own custom throws or to go shopping for them together. Have fun and get creative as a krewe! (Parade day is long, so definitely plan food and drinks.)

 

Step 4: Register. Don’t forget to register your krewe! The deadline to register is Friday, October 20 at noon and the deadline to pay is Sunday, October 22 at the Mandatory Safety Meeting. Don’t forget to read the Rules and Regulations prior to registering!

 

Step 5: Roll! Gather your krewe and roll with the rest of the parade on Saturday, October 28 in Downtown Baton Rouge! Laissez le BOO temps rouler!
