Krewe Dat 504 will participate in Mardi Gras, Krewe of Freret on Febuary 18, 2017, and they need eco-minded throws. Young minds are full of imagination, and the hope is that they will have fun while learning about NOLA culture by crafting parade throws! The preference is for incorporating repurposed and recycled materials to lessen the environmental parade footprint while creating delightful specialty throws.
Supplies such as milk jug tops, soda bottle tops, aluminum juice container tops (Think large doubloons!), wine corks, wood figurines, or whatever else they can come up with are encouraged! These items can be decorated and transformed into unique, one of a kind throws for parade goers to treasure.
Please remember that this is New Orleans; it’s an environment that is subject to rain and humidity quite often. Materials such as paper would probably not be ideal to use; the Krewe loves throws that will hold up to the weather and parade conditions. Other than that, it’s wide open to the whimsy of your students and you!
The Krewe kindly asks that you ship throws if you are not local. Members will be proud to receive them to give out to all the Parade Goers. Thanks Again* #BeMardiGras #SeniorYear #AintNoDatLikeAKreweDat #KreweofFreret Grand Marshal #Dancingman504 #Spidey504
