Mardi Gras is Close. Are You Excited? — Woo’s World

You can feel the excitement in the air. Mardi Gras is almost here. Every August, the local Mardi Gras Krewes announce their Royalty at a Half Way to Mardi Gras party. At last count there were approximately 17 Mardi Gras Krewes in Shreveport. Think of the economic impact Mardi Gras has on the city of Shreveport.
Last Saturday The “mighty” Krewe of Centaur announced their 2013 Mardi Gras Royalty. The band was Klock out of San Antonio, and to say I was impressed is an understatement. I’ve not heard a band that good in a long, long time. They played current hits as well as classics by the Bee Gee’s and Michael Jackson!

The dance floor was filled with dancers thrusting their fists up in time with the music. The stage was full of people jumping and dancing. It was a real Mardi Gras happening. In a mock Olympic presentation, Krewe members in athletic clothes came down the aisle carrying a torch moving in slow motion. Hilarious!

The King Centaur XXII is Brian Hammond. He looked every inch a king as he was crowned and toasted the party goers by lifting his goblet in a sweeping moment across the room that saluted all. Nicky Curnutte is Queen Centaur XXII. She was absolutely drop-dead gorgeous! A former LSU Golden Girl, her entrance music was the Tiger Fight Song, which caused the crowd to explode with cheers. She saluted the crowd in true Golden Girl style before starting down the aisle.

From all indications, the Krewe of Centaur’s XXII Mardi Gras year should rank up there among the best.
