Krewe de Riviere Roaring 20s Ball
After parading through the streets of Monroe and West Monroe for their inaugural parade, the Krewe de Riviere celebrated with a ball at the Monroe Civic Center on Saturday, February 8th. The theme was the roaring 20’s and guests were decked out in flapper gowns, pinstripe suits and feather headpieces. Mardi Gras Indians marched into the ball and got all of the guests up and dancing. The fun continued with Joe Lastie and the New Orleans Sound taking the stage, followed by a special performance by Robert Finley, the Grand Marshall of the parade. This year’s King Tommy Simms and Queen Ginger Padgett held court at the ball as well. Krewe de Riviere is the brainchild of Judy Babb who has worked tirelessly over the last year to see the parade to fruition. We can’t wait to see what they have in store for next year!
