Each year Confetti Kids, Inc. is host to several fun and kid-friendly annual events. They include:
Krewe of Confetti Kids Mardi Gras Parade
A very special, very Algiers Point parade! Decorate a bike, wagon or stroller, wear a costume and march along or watch the Parade from your porch! We wind through our neighborhood following a brass band, and end with a party with king cake, lemonade and champagne. Open to all of New Orleans. This parade is presented by Confetti Kids, Inc. and the Algiers Point Association.
Friendship Day Parade & Potluck
A lively kids parade through the Algiers Point neighborhood, which begins at Larkin Park and ends at Confetti Park. Kids and their families decorate bicycles, tricycles, strollers and wagons. This event takes place on Friendship Day, which is an annual street party put on by the Algiers Irish Rebels and Friendship Club on the corner of Olivier and Patterson Streets. Friendship Day usually falls on the Sunday preceding the Irish Channel St. Patrick’s Parade. Open to all of New Orleans.
Sunday, March 5 – 10:45 a.m. – Friendship Day Parade & Potluck
Family Pyrate Day
A celebration of pirate culture in New Orleans, and a swashbuckling good time! The whole family will love Family Pyrate Day, where we partner up with the NOLA Pyrate Week to create a pirate district on the Mississippi River. There will be a pirate market, an all-ages pirate tavern, storytelling, musical performances, games, demonstrations, crafts, and a treasure hunt.
