Who's thinking about Mardi Gras in Shreveport/Bossier City? We are! Even though the parades won't roll until early 2014, Mardi Gras madness never ends in the SBC!

Heck, just this past Saturday my husband played in the Krewe des Ambassadeurs golf tournament, and later on Saturday night he won the Mr. Centaur male beauty pageant. The party never ends!

If you're looking a for a good time, want to make new friends and do great things for the community, consider checking out any one of the fine Mardi Gras krewes that make the Ark-La-Tex home!
