CAVE PEOPLE VS. THE FRACKIN' STONE AGE! Theme: The Crudes Fighting fracking to keep us from a return to the Stone Age - and the extinction of our species
Although the Cryptic Krewe of C.A.V.E. People will not be parading this year, a new and super group, the Krewe de ReNew will be.
MARCH WITH THE
☀️Krewe de ReNew☀️
We'll be "Walking on Sunshine!!!"
Abita Springs Push Mow Parade this Saturday, February 18th!
Our theme is sunshine, wind and sunflowers, with a few butterflies to pollinate!
We have a few more spots available to march. If you'd like to join us, please message LeAnn Pinniger Magee today for details!
Okay, due to limited time and resources, and the small number of people who have actually committed to parading, we have asked the Pirate King if we can parade in his group as frack-fighting pirates. He thinks this is cool!
So swash your buckle and come up with a Fraccaneer costume! Signs are cool, too! I envision at least one derrick skewered on a cutlass, or maybe a wagon-ship with Brister walking the plank.
This could be fun!!! :-)
Gearing up for 2016!
The 2016 parade will be on Saturday, January 30th, and the theme is
Unsuitable School Mascots!
We're planning a Friday, December 11th meeting. You don't have to attend if you want to parade on the 30th, but we'll be picking a theme to fit the "Unsuitable Mascots" focus and tossing out ideas for handouts and throws.
We'll have other meetings later, and I'll post the results of this meeting here, as well.
If you want to attend this or future meetings and you're not already on our VOICES mailing list (you should have received an email on 11-22-15), then email us at Voices of St Tammany (at) usa.com. Facebook won't allow the email to be typed correctly, but you know to use the @ sign and leave no spaces, right?
We'll be sending out updates - and visit our website: VoicesofStTammany.com
We're on hiatus until later in 2015! If you're interested in becoming a member of the marching Cryptic Krewe of CAVE PEOPLE in next year's Push Mow Parade please leave a simple comment here ("Yes") and we'll contact you in late Fall when we start putting together our new theme for the January parade in Abita Springs!

[02/07/15] We had such a great time that we will definitely be walking next year, too! Don't forget! Join us next year - start thinking about your cave person costume now! And I really wish that I'd thought to take a photo of all of our "throws" - we had such a diverse and creative bunch of throws - really great and educational - anti-fracking, of course!
