Northwest Louisana has a vibrant Mardi Gras community and the Krewe of Elders is celebrating this Friday as they reveal their new royalty for the 2019 - 2020 Mardi Gras season.

Unfortunately, the shindig at the VFW Post 4588 on Jeter in Bossier is already sold out for Friday night. I prefer to think it's because I'm hosting the event, but it may have something to do with the fact that the Krewe of Elders is a lot of fun. You can always count on them to be the first ones on the dance floor and the last to leave!

If you were lucky enough to get tickets, the event runs from 6 pm - 11 pm and will feature the Eric Craig Band, a silent auction, buffet and booze wagon raffle. Drinks are BYOB. Last, but not least, we'll be introduced to their new royal court!

Now, all you have to do is figure our if you're a little more country or a little more rock n' roll and dress accordingly! See you Friday night!
