Blanc et Noir Marching Society.
Blanc et Noir has no floats. Nor do we sponsor a ball. We simply hire a New Orleans second-line style brass band, put on motley costumes and face paint, and parade ahead of the Krewe of Highland Parade.
Dues for 2008 are $30 per person for adults and teens. The money goes to pay the brass band.
This is a eclectic krewe: artists, dancers, bohemians, Carnival fans and people who simply want one day a year to have a ball are equally welcome. The basic costume is an umbrella plus a decorated black and white suit. But these are themes, not rules. All costume styles are welcome.
Blanc et Noir is proud to be diverse in age, ethnicity, gender and socioeconomic status.
There will be a photo shoot for The Times in early December. Our parade date is Sun, Feb 3, 2008. There will probably be a few gatherings along the way.
