Saturday morning, members of different area Mardi Gras krewes gathered at St. Pius X for the annual Mardi Gras Mass. The event was created by John Manno, a member of the Krewe of Gemini, more than 15 years ago.
The Mardi Gras season officially kicked off Saturday night with the 12th Night Celebration hosted by the Krewes of Centaur and Gemini at the Bossier Civic Center. But on Friday night the area royalty got the chance to let their hair down in a casual setting at the annual Royalty Mixer at the Centaur Den.
The 12th Night Party to kick off the Mardi Gras season was quite an event. The Krewe of Centaur parade rolls on February 9th while the Krewe of Gemini is set to roll on February 2nd. Both will begin downtown and wrap up near the duck pond on East Kings.
Time to drop off five Mardi Gras dresses to the cleaners today and get a Dryel for the rest that can't be dry cleaned, get your nails done tonight and plan to Mystic in the morning. Yep, Mardi Gras kicks off this Saturday!
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.
It's hard to believe that we're halfway to another Mardi Gras season! Well, to celebrate this anniversary of sorts, The Krewe of Centaur Midway to Mardi Gras Coronation Party. It's coming up Saturday night August 11 at 6:30 p.m. at Riverview Hall.
