New Orleans grooviest Dance Krewe, the Disco Amigos, are hitting the streets for the 2017 Mardi Gras season, and we want YOU to join us and put on the Worlds Greatest Rolling "Disco Train" Party!
WHAT IS THE DISCO TRAIN?
The Disco Train is a rolling disco party that follows the Disco Amigos and our van. If you've ever wanted to participate in Mardi Gras but don't want the commitment and expense of joining a krewe, then the Disco Train is for you! Think of it as Don Cornelius' 2nd line. It is open to anyone 21 and over who wants to join our funky disco party—great for locals and visitors!
We will be performing in the parades listed below, with more confirmations coming every day, so check back often:
Krewe of Cleopatra: Friday 02/17 - 6:30pm
Krewe of Olympia - Saturday - 02/18 - 6:00pm
Krewe of Nyx: Wednesday – 02/22 - 7:00pm
Krewe of Tucks: Saturday – 02/25 - 12:00pm

NEW! Shuttle for Disco Train Ticket Holders
To assist with getting you to the parades on time (and starting the party early), we are offering a Disco Shuttle Bus with round trip service from the Rendon Inn for all the parades we are participating in. There is a $10.00 charge per parade to use the Disco Shuttle Bus, even if you're riding one way. Please register at Eventbrite to reserve your spot by searching for Disco Amigos Parade Shuttle: https://discoamigosparadeshuttle2017.eventbrite.com
The Disco Shuttle Bus will pick folks up at the Rendon Inn at the times listed below and drop everyone off as close to the Disco Amigos location at the start of the parade as possible. The Disco Shuttle Bus will be waiting near the end of the parade to bring you back to the Rendon Inn.

DISCO TRAIN PARTICIPANT REQUIREMENTS
Each participant is required to adhere to Mardi Gras ordinances as well as:
Disco Attire is a MUST! Find a butterfly-collared polyester shirt, bell bottom pants, jumpsuit and platform shoes, along with any other appropriate accessory (wigs, necklaces, sunglasses). Visit the following amigos if you need some authentic 70's attire:
Nothing larger than a Man Purse. You can only bring what you can carry. NOPD prohibits dragging, pulling or pushing any other equipment, including but not limited to: rolling carts, shopping carts, ice chests, mechanical bulls, or boom boxes. You are welcome to contribute your beer and liquor to the communal ice chests for all Amigos and participants, and will be loved for it.
No Party Favors! Mardi Gras laws do not allow parade marchers to throw or hand-out beads, cups, doubloons, stuffed animals, or any items other than your funky moves.
Party, dance and have fun till the polyester falls off, bringing your Disco swagger to the streets of New Orleans.
Line up location and other details will be provided prior to each parade once you have registered. Questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
