I am so excited -- thanks for the info

YIPPEE


Oh well........

Think I found the general area. Looks like it is in Metairie, not too far from our hotel, but nowhere near where we will be at that time, unless we don't go to the reception.

Those from the area -- is this a safe place to be?

yes, safe.

The Krewe of Brid, an all-female marching krewe, will make its debut march through the heart of Lakeview on Friday, January 11. Beginning at 6:00 p.m., these lovely ladies will march on Harrison Avenue from the Orleans Avenue Canal to the 17th Street Canal, then u-turn and return along Harrison Avenue to the Orleans Avenue Canal.

New Orleans City Councilmember Shelly Midura will start the march with a toast. Local band Egg Yolk Jubilee will lead the march while the McTeggart Irish Dancers of Louisiana complete the line-up.

Sounds like a very small parade.

Anyway, an all-female marching krewe, would not be a large event.
