The reborn Krewe of Freret has received NOPD permission to roll on St. Charles Avenue during the 2014 Mardi Gras celebrations, and now only needs the City Council to add them to the calendar, krewe leaders announced.
For details, see the following email from krewe co-captain Robert Hjortsberg:
We are excited to announce The Krewe of Freret has BEEN APPROVED BY NOPD to ROLL down St. Charles Avenue Saturday February 22, 2014!!! We could not be more ecstatic about this news and we want to thank each and every one of you who helped us get this done.
The official parade schedule must still be approved by the City Council, however they have expressed to us that we have their support and they are excited about our mission!
As expected we will be opening membership very soon! We have a lot of new developments this year that we can’t wait to announce as soon as they are all finalized.
Don’t miss out on your chance to help us create a new and fresh Mardi Gras experience!!!
This has been a long tough process but we could not be happier about the outcome. It has always been a dream to parade down St. Charles Avenue and now that dream is becoming a reality.
