Mona Breaks Free!
2022 Theme: COMING SOON!
WE MARCH ANEW IN ‘22!!!
It’s time again, people, for Mona Lisa & MoonPie! “Mona Breaks Free” is our theme, and our spirit. An edict has been issued by our benevolent Royals, Queen Mona, Brandee SantinI and her King MoonPie, Matt Litchliter. “Hear ye, hear ye!! We shall hit the streets of Slidell on October 29, 2022, at 7 PM. All citizens are hereby commanded to attend and receive MoonPies!”
The Eternal Flame has been kept burning in the secret cave deep below Slidell Mountain since 2019, and will once again ignite the Flambeaux to light our way. Membership is now available, so signup and design your floats. How will you “Break Free”? Reserve your theme by signing up one member in your mini-Krewe. First check this site to determine if is already taken.
The Invincible Vicar of Victory, Vince Vance, will be at the fore of our column, leading us through Olde Towne after his Bayou Jam concert that afternoon at Heritage Park! Check back on this site for dates of our events. The first one is the official recognition of our King and Queen This Friday evening, May 6, at one of the stages set up in Olde Towne for the Crawl! In attendance will be yours truly, His Mostly Magnificent Magnanimous Muckiddy-Muck, Cap’n Tom, wearing the customary silly sea captains cap, so look me up and say hey! LETS GET THIS PARTY STARTED!!!!!
RED BEANS & RICE BALL
The raucous ridiculous Red Beans and Rice Ball will be celebrated at The Wine Garden, 300 Robert St, Olde Towne, Slidell from 6-9pm. As per our custom, the King and Queen wil be required that night to qualify, proving their worth to rule over their subjects! Members admitted free. Non members welcomed for $25 at the door. The ball features free food, live music (far superior to dead music), silly dancing, and a cash bar.
