Family Fun ~ Parade of the Mystic Krewe of Barkus

I'm often asked for family friendly options, especially during Mardi Gras. The parade of the Mystic Krewe of Barkus certainly fits that description. It is composed of dogs and their owners dressed in their finest costumes. Marching through the historic streets of the French Quarter. The theme for the 2008 parade is "Indiana Bone and the Raiders of the Lost Bark." If you would like to join in the fun with your puppy, just fill out the registration form & send your $40 membership/parade fee. The best part is that all proceeds will be donated to various animal shelters and humane societies. You get to have a great time AND help doggies in need. :) They are also asking for volunteers.

The Barkus Royal Ball will be held on Saturday, January 26th, 2008 at The Windsor Court Hotel, from 8:00 PM to Midnight. It is for humans only. The only canines allowed will be the King and Queen. You do not have to be registered for the parade to attend the party. Tickets $80.00.
