Since I first celebrated Mardi Gras in Pensacola, I have wanted to join a Mardi Gras Krewe. The tradition of the Krewes in New Orleans is amazing and I really want to be a part of the city in that way.
However, there a lot of Krewes in New Orleans and they are pretty hard to get into.
I am really interested in joining the Krewe of Iris, which I’ve heard is the oldest and most traditional all-female Krewe and I think it will give me that feeling of Sisterhood that I will be missing so far from Beta Xi. However, since it is so prestigious it is hard to find out how to join — I’m pretty sure you have to be invited. I desperately want to join but first I guess I will have to seek out someone who is already a member to find out more. Please let me know if you have any information!
I found this article on how to join a Mardi Gras Krewe — but it’s only got basic information.
If there are any Krewe members out there who can give me some advice I will really appreciate it!
