From the beginning our hope was to have this organization be more than “just another Krewe”, but instead to remain aligned with our Louisiana traditions and roots.  It is important to us for you and your family to feel welcomed in hopes that one day future generations will continue to embrace the traditions we hold so dear.  Krewe de Halcyon’s core values are family, fun and fulfillment year-round, with charity at the top of its list.  Of course, we place special emphasis on the Mardi Gras season!  The ball and parade will be a blast, and Louisiana’s carnival season will be enjoyed by all!
