The children’s Mardi Gras Krewe of Versailles is celebrating its 41st Annual Pageant and soiree in 2015. Our King Louis Roi de Soile and Queen Infanta Marie Therese will preside over the festivities.

The members ride on floats in the Children’s Mardi Gras parade each year where they throw beads and trinkets to the parade watchers. When you ask the children which they prefer best, the parade always seems to top the list!

After the last bead is thrown and the children are enjoying the memories of being with friends and dressing in costumes, the plans for the next Pageant begins with picking the theme, designing the costumes and holding the Royalty tea and interview to choose the next King, Queen and Honor Court’s Lords and Ladies. New children will be added to the krewe, some will say goodbye and our members will be looking forward to a year of upcoming social events, revelry and making new friends.
