Join the Krewe! An Experience of a Lifetime!

We're offering an experience of a lifetime! Want to be a part of Carnival 2012?? My family and I put together a package for those who would like to be a part of the Krewe of Carrollton. The dates of Carrollton weekend next year are February 9 - 12. We host a dinner at Deanie's Restaurant on the Thursday, Friday night is the Ball, and on Saturday, we do brunch at the Court of Two Sisters, a tour of Oak Alley Plantation followed by gumbo and snoballs. On Sunday, the whole krewe does breakfast at the House of Blues, then we second line back to the Hilton for the guys to get into their costumes and get on buses to go to their floats. Then the rest of us go out and watch the parade! Throws are included and are loaded on your float for you! The price is $1,690 for 2 people, one rider, and one non-rider. So you get a dinner for 2, ball invitations for 2 (which also include dinner), brunch for 2, plantation tour for 2, gumbo and snoballs for 2, breakfast for 2, and ride (including costume and throws) for 1. Plus, we take care of transportation for all the scheduled activities. All you pay for is your hotel and airfare. Carrollton gets a block of rooms at the New Orleans Hilton at a discount rate. Here is some important info:
Participation - Gentlemen ages 13 and up are eligible to ride. There's really no age limit for any other activity, however, because the ball is a very formal late night event, we recommend this experience for ages 13 and up only. Kids 5 and up can be members of the Royal Court, however, additional obligations and fees apply.
Dress Code - The Ball is a black tie event. Men should be in tuxedos. Ladies should be in floor length gowns. Those not in proper attire WILL be turned away! All other events are casual.
