About Krewe of Bonaparte

In 1972 a new Mardi Gras Krewe was established to help promote the tradition of Mardi Gras in Acadiana and to encourage Lafayette’s young citizens to participate in Mardi Gras. The Krewe of Bonaparte’s first event was a summer cocktail party held Saturday, August 5, 1972 at Oakbourne Country Club. Some 150 people attended the event.
