Parade of the Americas
Dear Friends of the Americas:
The Hispanic-American Musicians and Artists Cultural Association, Inc. (HAMACA) presenters of the annual Carnaval Latino, is preparing its 2016 Parade.
DESFILE DE LAS AMERICAS
We invite you to be part of this extraordinary experience. This is a unique opportunity to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15- October 15, 2016) and help us launch this year’s Carnaval Latino. The Hispanic community and its neighbors plan to get together and bring an International flavor to the New Orleans tradition of float parades. The cost for a country float is only $2,500 and for a commercial float is $5,000, each one can carry between twenty (20) and thirty (30) riders. Each group is encouraged to provide its own personalized music, costumes and throws (See details here). You can’t miss this opportunity to celebrate Louisiana’s Hispanic Heritage and advertise your business.
The Parade will take place on Saturday, October 15, 2016 at 6:00 pm. The floats and marching groups will form on the Convention Center Boulevard by the Sugarmill. Then flow down Convention Center Blvd., circle Harah’s Casino into Canal Street, turning into the French Quarter at North Peters. The parade will flow to Esplanade Avenue and make a U-turn and return through The Quarter via Decatur Street. At Canal St. it will turn right, then left at St. Charles. Upon reaching Poydras Street it will turn left and return to the Sugarmill Carnaval Latino grounds via South Peters.
