In lieu of a formal pre-party, we've decided to mount a ShipRocker takeover of The French Quarter the night before the cruise - And let's face it, that's where y'all wanna be that night anyway!  

We'll be kicking off the SR20 invasion of New Orleans with a massive Pre-Party Gras Parade, which will start at 6:00pm-CT on Friday, January 31st, and make its way around the heart of the French Quarter. You can view the route map below.

As much as we wish everyone could actually be in the parade, it's just not logistically possible. However, there a few different ways that ShipRockers can participate:

Watch The Parade

What's a parade without people to watch and enjoy it! All guests are invited to line the streets anywhere along the route (Bourbon between Canal and Toulouse is gonna be off the hook, we guarantee). Be sure to have your Hurricanes in hand and beg for them beads!

March In A Krewe

Join the parade brigade by marching in one of our five themed Krewes. Participation is limited to just a few hundred, so we'll be signing up interested guests on a first-come-first-serve basis. Click below for more info and to Krewe up!


Ride On A Float

There are a very limited number of spots available for guests to ride on one of our five fancy parade floats (which will feature a number of SR20 artists), and each will be awarded to guests at random via a lottery. If you'd like a chance to ride, click below and enter to win!
