The Krewe of Christopher is celebrating their 70th anniversary!
In 1953, members of a local Knight of Columbus sought to bring Mardi Gras to the community of Thibodaux. The Knights patron was Christopher Columbus, a devote Catholic and discoverer of America, thus the Krewe of Christopher being formed. To this day the Krewe continues the tradition of presenting a first class tableau and ball to our community and its families along with participating in local community events throughout the year to foster the long standing traditions of the Krewe.
The Krewe of Christopher will hold their Royal Tableau on Lundi Gras, Monday, February 12, 2024 at 8 p.m. The krewe of 145 members does not parade.
