The Backstreet Cultural Museum, a community institution and 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, and the Fi-Yi-Yi Mardi Gras Indian tribe are proud to announce their 23rd annual Back to School Picnic for New Orleans school children. This event, which this year takes place on Sept. 1, is held to provide school supplies, health screenings, food, drinks and recreation for school children at the beginning of each school year.
The annual picnic provides these necessities to over 350 area children. It also serves to connect children with community leaders who speak with them on issues of nonviolence, drug avoidance and local cultural traditions.
