When most people think of Mardi Gras, they think of parades, beads and parties… but that’s not all that Mardi Gras and our area krewes are about!

A lot of people don’t realize that most of our local Krewes are non-profit organizations and are committed to our community. A study says that the annual Mardi Gras parades provide a $16 million economic impact annually to our community. 

The Krewe of Highland has members from all corners of the Ark-La-Tex but they are about all things Highland… an historic and eclectic neighborhood in Shreveport. Not only do they host a yearly parade and bal, they’re also invested in all things ‘Highland.’

KSLA reports that the Krewe of Highland donated $4,500 to be used to create a free place/bicycle station for cyclists to air up tires and make repairs to their bikes in Columbia Park. The money will also help to provide electrical upgrades to Shreveport Fire Station #7 for their annual Christmas lights, electrical upgrades to the main pavilion in Columbia Park, as well as other lighting and security upgrades.

As a member of the area Mardi Gras community, this is a perfect example of the ways local Krewes are helping to grow and nurture our region. Let the good times roll!
