New Orleans’ grooviest Dance Krewe, the Disco Amigos, are hitting the streets for the 2019 Mardi Gras season, and we want YOU to join us and put on the World’s 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!

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 an optional Disco Shuttle Bus with round trip service from the Rendon Inn for all our parades. The Rendon Inn is located at 4501 Eve St (and N. Rendon). The bus will drop you off at the location of the start of the parade and pick you up at the location of the end of the parade. So convenient!

There is a $10.00 charge per parade to use the Disco Shuttle Bus, even if you’re riding one way. Please register on our Eventbrite page to reserve your spot by searching for Disco Amigos Parade Shuttle: https://discoamigosparadeshuttle2019.eventbrite.com

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 70s attire: 

  • Southern Costume Company (504-523-4333)
  • Miss Claudia’s Vintage Clothing & Costumes (504-897-6310)
  • Uptown Costume (504-895-7969)
  • New Orleans Party & Costume (504-525-4744) 

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 you 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 via email to our Disco Train Captain Billy Kartchner at billykartchner@gmail.com.
