    The Krewe of Bananimals will be participating in the Westgate Mardi Gras parade Friday, February 22, 2019. We will have parade walkers (carrying their beads in a decorated wagon or wagons) in the parade.

    Krewe lineup starts at 8:00 AM; the parade starts at 9:30 AM. It is a short route around the school area, where the children are brought out to catch throws.

    We must bring our own throws (can include beads, moon pies, small stuffed animals, toy balls, etc. but NO hard candy and no adult themed beads). If you have extra beads to donate or if you have a pull-behind wagon that you would like to use or could let us use in the parade, please let us know here on the registration page. The Bananimals has paid the parade fee, so there is no cost to you.

    Any assistance with this would be wonderful to make it a special day for the kids.

    2019 Mardi Gras Beach Parade Float Registration
    On December 8th, 2018 we will begin registration for the Float for the Beach Parade. We have limited space available for Riders and Walkers.  In addition, we will need 8 Safety Walkers (Safety Walkers must be sober and cannot drink alcohol or throw beads during the parade).  This is on a first come, first serve basis.  Your Krewe dues must be paid in order to register. Payment is expected immediately upon registration. 

    The 3 options for the parade are as follows:

    • Ride the Float: $100  (which includes 2 cases of beads provided by KOB)
    • Walk With the Float: $50  (which includes 1 case of beads provided by KOB)
    • Safety Walker: Free, but no bead throwing.  Provides security and safety for the float so no one gets hurt by the float.

    If you have any questions, please contact Terri Kelley at

    Note: In the event the 2019 parade has to be cancelled, no refunds will be issued.  It is solely the Krewe Board's discretion to carry over your registration/paid spot over to the next year's parade for the members as long as their dues have been paid by December 15, 2019.

    Rider & Walker cancellation notices must be received via the website system and if received less than 48 hours prior to the event, refunds will not be given and spots will be considered forfeited.
