Cheramie to reign over Krewe of Neptune


The Golden Meadow Carnival Club has announced their king for this year’s Krewe of Neptune’s annual all men Mardi Gras parade.

The announcement was presented by the club’s president Corey Galjour and the board members at their annual supper dance on Febuary 23, 2019.

Jay Cheramie will reign as Neptune LII during this year’s parade on March 5, 2019.

Cheramie is a native of Golden Meadow and a 1962 graduate of Golden Meadow High School. He is also a retired oilfield worker as well as a U.S. Air Force Veteran.

Cheramie is married to Willie Vegas Cheramie and spends most of his time at his retirement place in Crystal Springs, Mississippi, along with his wife and his trusty dog “Lady”.

The King’s pages for this year are Zoey Cheramie of Folsum, La., Laney Alario of Galliano, La., and Shannon Smith of Crystal Springs, Ms.

King Neptune LII invites everyone to come and enjoy this year’s parade which starts at the Galliano St. Joseph Church and travels along LA 1 through the town of Golden Meadow on Mardi Gras day, officially closing out the bayou’s Carnival season.
