Grand entrances

Krewe of Artemis-Springhill Captain Eric Simmons knows how to make an entrance.

Via horseback. (Shown here with Ky Allen.)

Yep, when you think you have seen it all at a Mardi Gras ball, the unexpected occurs. Simmons sat tall in the saddle as the music of "Rhinestone Cowboy" filled the auditorium for the krewe’s Grand Bal V Jan 13 at Springhill Civic Center.

Just after he dismounted, "Star Spangled Banner" began as a lady on horseback carrying the American flag entered.

It was the talk of the Krewe of Barkus & Meoux Jazz Brunch the next morning at Sam’s Town Casino & Hotel.

... Krewe of Sobek Captain Carl Pierson, a Caddo Commission member, certainly captured everyone’s attention when he made his grand appearance in pink.

He was applauded wildly at the krewe’s Grande Bal IV Jan. 12 at Riverview Hall. Not only did he wear pink tie and tails emblazoned with musical notes and instruments outlined in black sequins, but he made moves to the rhythm of jazzy music. It met the theme, "All That Jazz."
