The Krewe of Red Beans was created for Lundi Gras 2009. The idea was to take inspiration from different elements of New Orleans culture (Making a suit like an Indian and Second Lining (like a Social Aid and Pleasure Club). ... and of course, to celebrate the culinary tradition of Red Beans on Monday.
Friends - and friend-of-friends were recruited and we began working on our first suits. From those first 25 members (and 1 or 2 spectators) to now (2 parades, and around 10,000 spectators!) we have grown a bit - into loved Lundi Gras tradition :)
