Taking place in Gretna, LA, the Krewe of Cleopatra has just selected its queen for the 2012 Mardi Gras season. She is Belle Chasse resident Kimberly Buck.
It was 39 years ago that two sisters saw in their dreams a vision of Mardi Gras, with the beauty andgrace that could only be captured in an all women's carnival organization. Thus, was this krewe born.
A symbol was chosen for the power, dignity and beauty of a women's krewe...The ageless splendor of Egypt's mighty ruler...Cleopatra!
Our motto: Her beauty is timeless, her age is now… forever!
