The Krewe of Elders are experts when it comes to throwing a party and Friday, they'll be throwing a big one as they reveal their incoming royalty for the 2022 Mardi Gras season.

The Krewe of Elders Coronation XXIV is being held Friday, August 20th, 2021, starting at 6 pm at the Shreveport Moose Family Center 2239 located at 9113 Industrial Road, Shreveport, LA 71129. The theme for the evening is 'Explorers of Adventure' and you'll experience the krewe's incredible Mardi Gras journey.

During your quest to find out who the royals are, you'll encounter entertainment from the Eric Craig Band, dancing, a silent auction chock full of exciting items, a raffle for a wagon filled with booze, another raffle for gift cards to local businesses, a buffet for dinner, a cash bar, and myself as your Mistress of Ceremonies.

Tickets are $40 for members and $55 for non-members, but you better get them now, because they won't be selling tickets at the door. Tickets can be purchased from  Wanda Cunningham. You can contact her by calling (318) 925-3914 or emailing thekreweofelders@gmail.com. Attire for the evening is casual but coming like your favorite explorer/adventurer is highly encouraged.

Even though membership for the Krewe of Elders is for those 50 years old and up, don't let that fool you. These guys have way more experience throwing a party than anyone else. They're very active in both the local and Mardi Gras communities. Click here to find out more about the krewe and possible membership.
