Three chances to meet & greet at French Quarter Fest

OK fellow FQF travelers, we (my co-chair porelly and I), are setting up 3 chances to get together next month in NOLA.

1. Kick-off party aboard the Steamboat Natchez 7-10pm Thursday, April 8.

2. Opening day parade Friday, April 9 at 9am to march with our cute umbrellas.

3. Drinks at Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop 941 Bourbon Street Saturday, April 10, at 5pm

Those who want to participate in any or all of these, pm me and I'll give you my cell phone number so we can find each other.

See you there-jan

The co-chair (she's so cute) will be attending:

- the kick off party if there's a gang going on Thursday night.

- the M&G at Lafitte's on Saturday afternoon.

As for the parade, I will go by to say hi, but I prefer to stand to the side and watch the whole thing.

This is going to be so much fun!!!

OK porelly, if you're not gonna march, then we will designate you to take our pictures while we march.

There's gonna be 2nd line dance lessons Friday at the French Market Stage at 12:45-a little late for us, so we'll just have to wing it. A few bloody mary's will have us dancing in the streets!

Hubby and I will be in attendance at all 3 - you will get sick of seeing us!! We are going to start working on our umbrellas next week. We also get to make easter bonnets since we will be there for the Easter parades, too. I'm so excited!!!

We won't be there for the FQF but will be there for the Easter parades. Jrl51, do many people do the Easter bonnet thing. We've never been for Easter and this was a last minute decision. Decided that Halloween was too far away and we needed our NO fix before then. Of course, we will still go for Halloween.

The parade starts in the 100 block of Bourbon where it meets Canal, moves down Bourbon, right on St. Ann, and in to Jackson Square to open up the French Quarter Festival.

I dont' remember seeing tons of people with Easter bonnets, but saw some people with hats, some with full blown costumes, I even saw a very bad drag queen in his/her easter oufit. Toooooooo funny!!!!
