The Krewe of Kids is celebrating 27 years of Mardi Gras merriment.
This is the only co-ed social group for kids on the Island and is open to fifth graders and younger. Pre-schoolers must have an adult partner. The Kids have a few traditions that stick like glue - creating their custom a hand print banner by putting their entire hand in wet paint; eating doughnuts and cokes at a big time fun breakfast party where they draw names to choose a King and Queen; creation of a secret handshake and cheer; and finally, they allow one adult, the Biggest Kid, to join their ranks for the year.
