PARADE RULES FOR RIDERS

  1. NO DRINKING of alcohol on floats or at the area of float loading.  If you will be drinking other beverages, please use plastic cups or containers (preferably with a lid).  This is a City Ordinance! The Slidell Police Department can issue a citation ($125 fine) and can remove you from the float.  Cans and glass containers are NOT permitted.  They can cause injury if thrown from the float.
  2. NO SMOKING, THIS INCLUDES ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES/VAPES, on floats. Remember floats are filled with trash and are made of wood, paper, cloth and paint, which are highly flammable.
  3. NO boxes are permitted on the float. Put your throws in crawfish sacks, old pillow cases; duffle bags; garbage bags; nylon, burlap, or cotton bags; onion or potato sacks, etc. (anything collapsible). Don’t overload one bag. Please use the dumpsters on site for all trash when loading your throws onto the float on parade day. Remember, whatever you bring onto the float, you must take off.
  4. No hammers and no nails. We do not own these floats, they are rented and we cannot alter them.
  5. Use CAUTION when throwing anything, especially spears and heavy beads, from the float. Those items should be handed to the person. We do not want to injure anyone.
  6. Do NOT throw questionable throws from the float. Remember the crowd is filled with children. Please use discretion and hand personal throws to whomever they are intended. Riders may throw items only along the parade route. Throwing in the formation/staging areas before the parade starts, in the disbanding area after the parade is over or in Spartan Drive is strictly prohibited. The Club must obey City Ordinances which prohibit throwing until the float reaches the designated start which is Pontchartrain Drive.
  7. Throws which include advertisements are allowed however, they must contain the words “Krewe of Selene,” somewhere on the item. All throws containing advertisements should be shown to the Officers in advance for approval prior to parade day. No political throws are allowed.
  8. Only members are allowed on the float! Our insurance does not cover others that are not members. Please be considerate of others who are loading. Floats are equipped with side gates for entry and exit purposes. Riders must be extremely careful when entering, and particularly when exiting, the float. Boarding is in the formation area only. Riders are not authorized to enter or exit the float without the approval of the Float Lieutenant. No rider is to exit the float until: (a) the truck has come to a full and complete stop; (b) the truck driver has turned off his engine and has indicated to the Float Lieutenant that it is safe to disembark; and the Float Lieutenant has authorized disembarking the float. At that time, all riders must exit the float expeditiously and carefully. No exceptions!
  9. Do NOT use foul language or confront any parade watcher. If you have a problem, tell your Float Lieutenant and she will contact a police official or parade Marshall on the route.
  10. Remember, your costume and hat must be worn at all times. Wear your own pants and your float T-shirt if you have one. If cold, consider wearing a sweatshirt underneath the costume.
  11. Bring a clear poncho to put over your costume in case of rain and bring a flashlight (a cheap disposable kind would be the best).
  12. DO NOT lean over the side of the float! It is extremely dangerous and you could injure yourself or someone else. Also, the light bulbs on the side of the float are extremely HOT, please be careful not to burn yourself!
  13. Be courteous to the person next to you on the float and allow each other throw space. Do NOT block the exit door, ladder, or bathroom area with throws or anything else. Beads, bags or anything else is not allowed to be hung over the sides of the float as this can damage the float and/or cause injury to someone below. Each rider is allocated a certain amount of space by their Float Lieutenant, please do not infringe on your fellow rider’s space.
  14. Make arrangements to ride with or have someone pick you up after the parade, which ends on Gause Boulevard near Rouse’s Supermarket.
  15. The Krewe is NOT responsible for any personal items left behind on the floats.
  16. One disc jockey (DJ) per float. DJ’s are not allowed to throw anything from the float or be in any type of a costume. DJ’s are required to ONLY play non-explicit music. If any DJ plays inappropriate music, he/she will not be allowed to attend any future Selene functions. NO EXCEPTIONS!
  17. A rider cannot change his position on the float without the concurrence of the Float Lieutenant, and cannot ride in any place on the float not designated for riders (i.e. railings, top of float, props, etc.). A rider must stay in his position until the parade is over.
  18. A rider must be in good health to ride. In the event of any question regarding a rider’s health, it will be necessary for them to produce a doctor’s communication certifying that he/she is sufficiently healthy to ride.
  19. The parade crowd is made up of our members’ families and friends. They should be given the same respect that you would want given to yours. We are a FIRST CLASS PARADE. Make a lasting impression on what we want parade watchers to remember. We are known for a quality parade and our generosity with throws.
