Mystic Krewe of Loup Garou: The Facts
Who: Anyone can join the MKLG. You do not need to be a resident of the Irish Channel or a member of the Irish Channel Neighborhood Association
What: A spirited walking parade through the Irish Channel. We envision this as a community parade and encourage creativity in building wagon/cart “floats” and over the top original Carnivale costumes!
When: Saturday, February 4, 2017 at 4:00 p.m.
Why: This is a fundraiser for the Kara Morgan Shade fund. “Kara was diagnosed with Stage IV melanoma in 2013, and she dedicated what would be the last year of her life to raising awareness about skin cancer from simple efforts like distributing sunscreen at outdoor events to major efforts like a statewide ban on minors in tanning beds. Her dying wish was to build large shade structures over the play areas in Burke Park (similar to that in Palmer Park) and the association quickly collected about $10,000 toward the project after her death last summer.” Robert Morris, Uptown Messenger
