Krewe Les Brigands de Lafitte 2016

The plucky masked pirates of Les Brigands de Lafitte paid homage to American heroes for the 2016 tableaux. Preceded by the likes of Christopher Columbus, Abraham Lincoln, Babe Ruth, Neil Armstrong and others, Captain America presided over the pantheon as the 62nd Jean Lafitte. In the unique tradition of Brigands, the queen was pronounced after the court took the stage and this year it’s the lovely Caroline Kallam. The pirates were dashing as ever, The Bat Boys predictably raucous and the tableaux playlist was the bomb!
