1996 – KdV Achieves Decade-ence

Present

“The Ten Commandments of New Orleans”

 

In 1996, we all dressed as Nuns and Priests and came up with some

pretty creative names which we proudly displayed.

We were up to 60 members this year, and distributed the

“New Commandments for the Big Easy”

as our D&D handout along the parade route.

Our float, decorated as the Arc of the Covenant, was pulled by a mule.

Unfortunately, our “hefty” mule attendant insisted on riding the float and broke the frame.

It ended up on the back of a pick up truck – at the end of the parade!

The weather was freezing that year, about 5 degrees.

By the time we got to the KDV DOO, there were several cases of hypothermia,

and a few of us were sent home early.
