From there, we made our way to St. Charles to bring the dance party to Fat Harry’s, with their phenomenal chicken nachos and…more ice cold beer and a Best 80s Workout Gear contest. With so much neon colored spandex and netting, the crowd had a difficult, but entertaining time picking a winner. Of course, a party ain’t a party if there isn’t at least one group line dance. So there right in the middle of St. Charles, we made it electric with one of the biggest Bus Stops I’ve ever seen! Not even the rain that came pouring down could stop this party!
The convoy headed down General Pershing to Le Bon Tomps Roule on Magazine St. for more ice cold beer and a limbo contest, where Team InthekNOwla showed them how to get down! With music blasting, we danced to everything from Pitbull to Flo Rida to Cyndi Lauper! La Cocinita Food Truck even parked on the side to fill party goers with their fabulous Latin American cuisine.
But it wasn’t over! Leaving Le Bon Tomps, the revellers took it back to Lyons St. for the block party in front of F&M Patio Bar. And what would a 610 Stompers party be without a dance off? Contests pulled out all their best moves in what had to be one of the best dance offs I’ve seen in a while!
Aside from all the dancing and partying, the Ball Crawl was also a party with a party. Proceeds from the Ball Crawl benefited local non-profit, The Roots of Music, a free, year-round, music education program for middle school children in New Orleans.
So if you missed it, you definitely missed out! But not to worry, this is an annual event. Be sure to sign up early next year for what is guaranteed to be another throw down show down, dance around town for a good cause by the amazing men of the 610 Stompers!
