rolls along and darkness decends on the area, the noise
of the Krewe Bands can be heard in the distance as they

House. Just the sight alone of the " Flambeaux Carriers " parading
past with their open light torches, the beating of the
parade band drums and the wonderfully exciting floats is
a sight to be seen.
