Heart disease is the #1 killer of women in the United States and FestiGals is stepping up to do something about it! FestiGals invites you to step up to shine a light on heart disease and its impact on women. We're asking participants to lead the parade through the Vieux Carré to help raise money for the New Orleans Area American Heart Association in the most New Orleans way possible—with your blinking boas, beads and neon attire. You don’t have to be a woman to attend, you just need to be ready to celebrate all the wonderful divas, ladies, and gals of the world. SCHEDULE 7PM – 8PM: Pre-Party at The New Orleans Jazz Museum 8PM: STEP UP Second-Line Parade through the French Quarter 9PM – 11PM: After-Party at Harrah's New Orleans Casino Theater Don't just Step, Step Up!
