Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I join?

A: Click Membership and complete the Amelia EarHawts Fly Boy and Fly Girl Membership Form & Waiver. You'll find the submission instructions on page 2 of that PDF.

Q: When does membership open?

A: Typically in May. You can watch our Facebook page for the official announcement.

Q: When does membership close?

A: Membership closes either when we've become a very full flight, or if there are still middle seats available.

Q: How long are the parade routes?

A: Most of our parades follow the Uptown parade route in New Orleans. Here's a sample route from Druids. It's about 6 miles.

Q: Do I have to walk or dance the whole route?

A: Yes, you do. We have walk songs and dance songs; dance songs are choreographed.

Q: Do you have auditions/tryouts?

A: No. We do have two requirements, though. You need to be able to walk 6 miles (rounding up a bit) and have fun at the same time, and you need to attend mandatory practices/events.

Q: Are there any age requirements?

A: Yes! You have to be 21 years old to be a member.

Q: How often do you practice?

A: We practice once a week, from October through about the first week that Mardi Gras parades begin rolling, with additional outdoor practices scheduled as needed. Sometimes we will hold a special practice for an out-of-season parade.

Q: What's the difference between a Hawt and a Cabin Krewe member?

A: A "Hawt," short for Amelia EarHawt, is a member of our Mardi Gras dance troupe. A Cabin Krewe member, consisting of Fly Boys and Fly Girls, has to keep the plane flying. You can find more information about them by clicking Membership.
