Spotlight On Mardi Gras: The Krewe Of Aesclepius [AUDIO]

TSM

Traditionally known as the ‘medical’ krewe of the Ark-La-Tex, the Krewe of Aesclepius has members from every area of industry.

Being in the medical industry used to be a requirement for membership, but now, non medical industry individuals can join Aesclepius. In fact, Aesclepius boasts the lowest membership dues in the area. They’d love to have you come out this Saturday night and get to know the krewe at the Grand Bal Saturday night at the CenturyLink Center. Tickets are $50 and it’s black tie.

The krewe is also known as being the ‘childrens’ krewe by hosting an annual children’s parade at Pierre Bossier Mall on Fat Tuesday. In addition, their bals are renown for their elaborate collar pieces and pageantry.
