Camellia Beans - http://www.camelliabrand.com
We cannot thank the good folks at Camellia Beans enough! First off, they help us cover the parade permit fee and support our musicians! Additionally, they give us all the beans we could ever glue! They are a long-standing local institution - a family business that gives back and supports the culture of New Orleans!
Surebonder Glue Guns + Hot Glue sticks
The Krewe of Red Beans is proud to use Surebonder glue guns and hot glue sticks - pretty much everything we create is with those glue guns! And over the past 10 years, we have found Surebonder is the best brand of glue-gun out there (trust me, we've burned through many others!). Surebonder is the only brand that can handle the amount of hot-glue-crafting we do each year in preparation for our parade! If you need a glue gun - make sure you get a good one!
The Backstreet Cultural Museum - http://www.backstreetmuseum.org
We love the Backstreet Museum and Mr. Slyvester! They give us a wonderful location to end our parade each year! Block Party Style!
