As Austin’s only New Orleans-inspired Halloween parade organization, KreweDCM has worked very hard through the years to bring a fun and exciting alternative to the standard sights and sounds of our favorite Fall Holiday.
In keeping with that tradition, KreweDCM is happy to announce our intention to change focus and intent for 2012. We plan to move our parade route to the residential neighborhood and entertainment district of East Austin. After giving downtown Austin five amazing annual parades, we feel it is now time for something different–we plan to reset what we do with a re-visioning that incorporates some of our original goals as a NOLA-inspired event for Austin.
This year, we are planning a second line parade featuring the Dead Music Capital Band that will allow us the freedom to parade through parts of town that may have never seen what we do. After moving through those residential areas, our second line parade will take a more adult turn and evolve into a pub crawl through the entertainment district of East Austin, culminating in a raucous final set from DMCB at the Violet Crown Social Club.
