April 22, 2023 - SMART ART OF TRASH 

The Smart Art Of Trash is  The Recycle Challenge walking and performance parade sponsored by JAMNOLA. Features youth to adult performers from bands,  poets, musicians, stilt walkers, and artists honoring recycling, and repurposing to upcycled costumes and dress floats.

All are worn by princesses, queens, and kings with krewe names such as The JamNola Queen, Burlesque Queen, The African Queen, Skate Queen & King, The Sun Flower Paper Dress Queen, and Thee Church Queen, The Queen of Black and White, along with Liberty and Freedoms Princess and others! 

This parade will feature fifty-plus to one hundred krewe members.

LUNDI GRAS PARADE ROUTE Hours: 2 PM SHARP! Ala Carte Reservations & Online available on November 30, 2022 Event feature a "Live-Stream" experience. Reserved Seating & Standing Areas. It is encouraged for parade goers to bring lawn chairs for comfort. Roaming vendors will be on sight with various meals and such. Along with St. Roch Market Food vendors. This parade awakes the imagination as one part of the eparade begins at Benaladia in the ByWater neighborhood and then joins us at the St. Roch Market location as it winds through the neighborhood. We will inroduce to you over ten queens and their courts of meriment. Through performing arts with dancers, stiltwalkers, drummers and more we introduce New Orleans rich culture through storytellers, poets, dance, wearable art as paper dresses, gowns, suits and rose pricesses. You are part of an art performance in the street that shares the story of nature, life and history. Parade goers can expect to be wowed with marching bands and dancers and instead of being thrown a "throw", New Orleans Mardi Grais features throws from floats. We feature "gives" that are handed out by our team of performers throughout the parade route. The throws will range from jewelry, accessories, money, food and free tickets. Many of our "gives" are hand made and come from the heart. When you recieve a "give" it's something you can use, wear or enjoy. All of course with a recycling, organic, natural or good for you them.
