Krewe of Cleopatra

It seems like yesterday two sisters saw in their dreams a vision of Mardi Gras, with the beauty and grace that could only be captured in an all women's carnival organization. Thus, was this krewe born. A symbol was chosen for the power, dignity and beauty of a women's krewe... The ageless splendor of Egypt's mighty ruler... Cleopatra! In 2013, fter 39 years of parading on the Westbank, the Krewe of Cleopatra moved her procession to Uptown New Orleans along the traditional St. Charles route.

On January 29, 2016 at 6:30 PM, The Krewe of Cleopatra parade will start at the intersection of Napoleon Avenue and Perrier Street in New Orleans. The parade will proceed north until St. Charles Avenue, where the krewe will turn east. The Krewe of Cleopatra will follow St. Charles Avenue to Lee Circle, around the circle, and back on to St. Charles Avenue northward to Canal Street. At Canal Street, the parade will turn northwest on Canal Street and follow the road to Burgundy Street, where the parade will u-turn and proceed on the opposite side of Canal Street southeastward. The parade will follow Canal Street to Tchoupitoulas Street, where it will turn south. The parade will end at the intersection of Tchoupitoulas Street and Poydras Street.

About the Book
Never before has the history of the Mardi Gras celebration been looked at this way. Errol Laborde focuses on the first 60 years of the organized celebration in New Orleans, a period that bridges the premiere parade of the Mistick Krewe of Comus and the founding of the Zulu organization. Along the way he discovers fascinating characters; including a poetic journalist who survived a bloody attack, an archduke looking for fun and a would-be king finding religion. Laborde also links an African War with Custer¹s Last Stand and disproves some of the conventional wisdom about Carnival¹s early history. This is the most important contemporary book on early Carnival history. And it fun to read too.
