GET READY TO BE
There are six contingents in the parade, one for each color of the rainbow flag, and each color contingent is put together by a group of volunteers called a "Krewe."
Each of the six color contingents have matching costumes and a float or moving props of some kind. Parade sponsors are covering logistic costs like insurance and police, float and prop costs, and a portion of costumes. Your registration fee covers most of your costume, but not shoes. Each color contingent has a different style of costume and there are different price points to choose from.
It's really easy to join and take part. Just choose a color and costume option and sign up! Be advised that, due to time constraints imposed on the parade, we have to limit how many people can be in each contingent --- so sign up now to guarantee your spot!
