Mardi Gras Pet Parade - Krewe of Barkus & Meoux - 15th Annual

Krewe of Barkus & Meoux
SUNDAY,February 10, 2013

We are Registered as a Group, for the Mardi Gras Parade. You may bring as many ferrets as you wish to bring. You will not receive a T-Shirt. If you want one you can buy one for $15.00.   To order one you may email [masked]

You have to bring with you a copy of your ferret's Rabies Certificate. They keep the Rabies Certificates.
DO NOT Check In.  I (Jimi Hummel) did the registration, so my name is the contact name. I will Check in for HAFA.
To give everyone enough time to get there I will not check in until 12:15 PM. Please get a copy of your ferret's Rabies Certificate to me by that time.

We will be walking 20 blocks.  Put your ferrets in something that they will be comfortable in and is either on wheels or you can carry comfortably. Also have a water supply for your Ferrets.

We will be throwing Beads.  Jack & Sherry have paid for these.  If you would like to help pay for the beads you might give Jack or Sherry a couple of bucks.

This is an outdoor event bring, a cloth to cover the top of your cage, a Spray Bottle of water, Ice Pack, Ice Pack Cover, Battery Operated Fan, and a Thin Cloth, all for keeping the ferrets cool.

Map Link:


I-45 S becomes Broadway St/Ave J/TX-87 N.  Go Straight on Broadway.  Turn RT onto 25TH St/Rosenburg St.  There is a Large Statue in the middle of the Intersection.  Find a Parking Place as close to 28th and the Seawall as you can.  Walk to the Check In Point. Look for our Group.

    We had a Great Time. The weather was perfect. The Rain hit just as I was leaving the Island. If you didn't make it you missed a lot of people who were Very Excited to see the Ferrets.

    So I realize that I accepted, but was thinking it would be added to my calendar. I won't actually be there with Coco and I'll be cheering you all on from the sidelines!!

      Jenna Join us. I'm sure we can find a ferret for you to carry during the parade. Some people come without ferrets. We always share.

      Hee hee Mom wants to be a watcher, but we'll come find you all before hand :) LOVE the you tube video from 2011! The shot where the albino and sable are cuddling reminds me of my boy, Coco and his late brother, Pinky... Made me tear up but it was so sweet :)
