Wow! We did it again! Rain or Shine!

The Royal Street Stroll was a huge success with more than 100 Corkians joining the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience crowd on the street in the pouring rain to bring a perfect albeit a very wet end to the Krewe year.

From the beginning of the evening with pre-stroll activities through the stroll down Royal Street and back the Krewe lived up to its mantra of Wine! Food! And Fun!

Ending with a terrific post-stroll gathering at Hotel Mazarin everyone had the chance to enjoy Chef Agnes Bellet’s delicious buffet along with featured Saved/Estancia wines.

The presentation ceremony of the Grand Marshal’s cape to Clay Brock Winemaker of Saved/Estancia Wines was made more special by the presence of 2 previous Grand Marshals: Susie Selby, Grand Marshal, Royal Street Stroll 2011and Bryan Del Bondio, Grand Marshal Royal Street Stroll 2012

The stroll proceeded with Grand Marshal Clay, King Patrick, Queen Jeffrey, Captain Bill, and Freddie Lonzo and The Cork Poppas from da Region leading the way.  The Wine Police, led by Maurice, kept everyone’s glass full during the very wet trek. The crowds on Royal Street certainly cherished their new Krewe of Cork beads and new acquaintances in the Krewe.

Special thanks are due to Jaynie who voluntarily assisted with the pre-stroll preparations and Carolyn Rose who helped us make things work on stroll day itself. 

Now, we look forward to the beginning of a new KOC year with membership opening June1st 2015.
