What is a Krewe? | @2theadvocate

According to Wikipedia the definition of krewe is: A Krewe (pronounced in the same way as "crew") is an organization that puts on a parade and or a ball for the Carnival season. The term is best known for its association with New Orleans Mardi Gras, but is also used in other Carnival celebrations around the Gulf of Mexico, such as the Gasparilla Pirate Festival in Tampa, Florida, and Springtime Tallahassee as well as in La Crosse, Wisconsin

It began with a simple question, “So, just what exactly is a krewe?” … And so we set out to “decode the krewes” as Mardi Gras fever grips the Capital City.
