This year Mardi Gras has been a long 58 days of fun and celebration!
The delicious King Cakes we have all been consuming will be retired until 2015 Twelfth Night rolls around!
Throughout the Mardi Season residents and Krewe members have many events to participate in and be invited to! Every weekend there has been a Ball and/or event taking place but its all so much fun! The costume balls are my favorite but who doesn’t enjoy dressing up like Cinderella for a night at a formal Ball!
KREWE DU LAC COCKTAIL PARTY
It would not be Mardi Gras without a Tutu!!
KREWE OF BARATARIA- Monopoly Theme
KREWE OF BARKUS PARADE!
Every year the season ends with the Royal Gala where the public and Krewe members can view all the Royalty of over 50 Southwest Louisiana Krewes! The costumes and parade of feathers and color is really a WOW to behold!
This year Mardi Gras will be a chilly one with temperatures in the 30’s….so if you are going to the Krewe of Krewes parade bundle up its going to be hard to catch those beads wearing gloves!
