If a parade vehicle is unable to participate, we will make every effort to reasonably accommodate you and supply another vehicle.

The fees associated with the parade cover fuel, drivers time and parade entry fees.
It is our desire to keep the cost as low as possible so that as many riders as possible can enjoy the experience.

On the links to the left, you will see a waiver section. You MUST review the waiver. We encourage you to download it and keep in your files. You will be required to acknowledge that you understand it when you pay at registration.

Through the years, we’ve been very fortunate that no major situations (beyond a mechanical failure that required us to push a vehicle down the seawall) has occurred on the Carnes Parade Krewe. We want to keep it that way and as we grow, waiver requirements are part of that.
