Mardi Gras Celebration in Downtown Phoenix

Hey EVERYONE. It's Mardi Gras time and lets promote our Meet up and get Zedeco and Cajun rolling in Phoenix. Come for this fun event and join the parade with me. We have to be in line by 3:30 as the parade starts at 4:00. Look for me in that bikini costume. Really! I'm not sure if I will wear the wig but will likely have a mask and will likely hold a pink parasol. Come dressed up for fun. Bright colors, boas, outlandish outfits (although tasteful) as there will be kids watching the parade.

It would be great if you could bring beads or small candies to throw out to the people. You'll feel like a celebrity! If I have an old boom box that works with batteries I will bring in and play some of my favorite Zydeco music.

If you don't join the parade but see me walking around please come introduce yourself and lets together see how we can get Zydeco Music in Phx and plan other fun events.

We need a place to celebrate Fat Tuesday or lets go to San Diego!

    Hello, sorry I couldn't make this event. I didn't get back from the Historic Florence Tour until 5:30 PM and decided to stay home and relax. I hope you all had a Bon Temps.

    Hi Kim: Welcome to the Group as Event Organizer! Between you and me and the members of this group, we can build the Zydeco community.

    I've started a forum for brainstorming ideas. It can be found in the discussion tab under messages. Kim, we'd like you to introduce yourself here. The link is:
    http://www.meetup.com/ZydecoArizona/messages/boards/thread/25542472/0/#[masked]

    Please use the discussions tab, and try to refrain from replying or starting discussions via email (since members get upset when they get so many emails from the group).
