Mardi Gras is almost upon us, which means Krewe de Canailles is about to pop off. We’ve made a ton of new headway since the last update. We still haven’t received our 501(c)7 status approval so we’ve reach out to TRAIL to act as our fiscal agents. We’ve added a new board member with Paige Casselman Beyt, secured our permits and are ready to march!
We were also featured in another KATC story – this time with no name misspells! It can be seen here – http://www.katc.com/story/37211172/walking-krewe-to-start-new-mardi-gras-traditions-in-lafayette.
Lastly, we’ve secured the New Natives brass band and Lost Bayou Ramblers to play the afterparty at Warehouse 535, both of which will also be marching in the parade. Everything is shaping up for Krewe de Canailles to be a permanent Lafayette Mardi Gras fixture.
Until the march is over,
Rodney Hess (Team Leader)
