Announcing Queen 2015 Jeffrey McIlwain

At lunch in October, we announced that Jeffrey McIlwain would reign as Queen 2015.  Jeffrey has been an active member of the Krewe since 2001.  She designed and made our King’s first cape and crown along with 2003 Queen Debbie’s costume and the original Wine Spots costumes for our very first official parade. We are thrilled that Jeffrey will honor the Krewe as Queen 2015.

Stay in the Quarter for the Parade

We are pleased to announce a special offer for hotel rooms the week of the Krewe Parade.  Visit the site set up for Krewe members to make a reservation directly with the Royal Sonesta in the French Quarter. What a wonderful idea to just go upstairs and crash after the King and Queen’s Party, which will be at the hotel following the parade.
