Krewe Could Be Forced to Move Parade From West Bank

The Krewe of Alla says it needs new members or it will be forced to consider moving its parade route from the West Bank.

The krewe says without 200 new members by June 1 it may be forced to parade on the more popular St. Charles Avenue route on the East Bank.

The organization says it understands it must be self-sufficient.

Board members say if it doesn’t meet its goal it will have no alternative but to consider options to save the Krewe of Alla for future generations.

Membership has been declining for several years.

Alla’s annual dues are $450.

The krewe says it’s been affected by an economic downtown and the allure of parading uptown.
