It is time for the beginning of Mardi Gras. It will not look quite the same as other years, but some of the festivities will still continue. This year, on January 6, 2021, from 6-9PM, the Krewe of Jeanne d’Arc/ Joan of Arc Project will be rolling down Behrman Memorial Park.
This year, once again, the Krewe de Jeanne d’Arc will celebrate St. Joan of Arc’s birthday. This year the Krewe presents Tableaux de Jeanne d’Arc which is a medieval themed live performance drive-by event, inspired by Jean’s life and legacy.
In a multitude of tableaux we tell the story of Joan from her childhood as a shepherdess to her sainthood. You will see most of the props, characters, performance groups, and music from our annual walking parade as you drive by. Look for some new vignettes as well! While you wait in line you’ll be able to log in and listen to the story of our parade or compete in our Joan Quiz Bowl. We anticipate wait times of approximately 40 minutes so you’ll have time to do both!
