Marching through Mardi Gras – Parading with pizzazz with the Krewe of Carrollton on Feb. 16, the Dominican band, color guard and cheerleaders dance and perform for the crowds on St. Charles Ave.
During the 2020 parade season, the Dominican performance groups demonstrated their talents while marching in parades. They marched in multiple parades including Le Krewe d’Etat, along with the Krewes of Babylon and Okeanos. For the first time this year, they marched with the Krewe of Carrollton. With these krewes, Dominican performance groups walked around 4.5-7 miles each in each parade.
“I loved seeing my friends and family cheering me on from the street,” said freshmen Kelci Lewis, who plays snare drum. “It always brought a smile to my face and kept me going.”
