The Krewe du Coeur Maudit is Austin, Texas’ first ever Halloween parade krewe. Inspired by and in honor of New Orleanian parade traditions, KreweDCM brought Austin a new and exciting type of Halloween experience with its inaugural parade October 31, 2007. Every Halloween night since, KreweDCM has continued to astonish revelers with wild new themes and amazing visuals.
Laissez la Fin des Temps Rouler!
KreweDCM is ready for our 6th Halloween spectacle…are you? Get your costume and dancing shoes on and meet up 7:00 PM at 2nd and Caney St Wednesday 10/31/12 for the Apocalypse 2012 Halloween Secondline Parade. At 8:00 PM, the Dead Music Capital Band will start the music and we will Let the End Times Roll!
The 3rd Street portion of the secondline parade is residential so feel free to bring candy for the kids. From 3rd and Comal, we will head North to East 6th Street for the pubcrawl portion of the parade. Dead Music Capital Band will lead our motley lot through stops at the Volstead Lounge, Cheer Up Charlie’s, and a final raucous stop at the Violet Crown Social Club. Follow the action via the DMCB Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/deadMCBand

Our Kickstarter Campaign was funded last night–THANK YOU ALL FOR PLEDGING! YOU make Halloween possible–bring on the ‘Circus of the 7 Dawns!!
The Kickstarter Campaign to fund our 5th Anniversary Halloween Parade, “Circus of the 7 Dawns” is live for 4 more days. As of 6:50 PM today, we are 32% funded. Make sure to get your pledge in before Sunday–reserve your spot to march with the Circus and help fund the community we have been working five years to build. Halloween in Austin is all the better for it and you can be, too!
KreweDCM has launched a Kickstarter Campaign to fund our 5th Anniversary Halloween Parade:
As of today, Sunday September 18, 2011, we have 10% pledged toward our goal of $5,500. A $5,500 budget may seem outrageous, but the truth of the matter is this: parade permits, police escorts, and insurance do not come cheap! Roughly 70% of that $5,500 budget goal goes directly to those necessary permits, police escorts, and insurance. The remainder is there for build costs–puppets, clowns, banners, doubloons, carnival games, prizes, throws…all the things that will actually make the ‘Circus of the 7 Dawns’ the enormous spectacle it needs to be and Austin deserves to see.
If you haven’t yet joined KreweDCM as a 2011 member, please go now to our Kickstarter Campaign and reserve your spot to march on Halloween. You will join KreweDCM, the Dead Music Capital Band, Best Best Best Friends Brass Band, Major Mayhem Marching Band, (and more!) for the only Halloween Circus event of its kind in the world! Great Times Guaranteed!
