Krewe Of Nereids Royalty Announced

The Krewe of Nereids recently announced and presented their queen at a member’s only dinner and party.

Reigning as Queen Nereids XXXI is Kitty Pitre of Golden Meadow, daughter of Tom and Hope Pitre. Her fiancé is Eric Prudhomme of Galliano.

The queen’s siblings are Roxxy Leger and Thomas Pitre IV.

Attending the Queen as Pages will be Kami Jane Pitre, daughter of Thomas Pitre IV and Amber Rebstock; Russ Anthony Leger, son of Quinton and Roxxy Leger; Lucas John Sassoni, son of Korik and Renee Sassoni; and Jake Ryan Plaisance, son of Jason and Angela Plaisance.

The theme of this year’s parade is “Nereids Dazzle The Night”. The parade will roll on the traditional route through the town of Golden Meadow on Sunday, February 15, at 6 p.m. and will feature beautiful single and double decker illuminated floats that will light up the sky and excite parade goers.

The riders atop these floats will be throwing thousands of beads, trinkets and the krewe’s signature throws.
The Krewe of Nereids is the first all female night parade in Lafourche Parish which formed in 1984 and rolled in 1985, drawing crowds from around the country to view this spectacular event.

The Board of Directors are Jenifer Cheramie, Gwen Pitre, Lily Jambon, Willie Cheramie, Glenda Sanamo, Sheila Cheramie, Charlene Griffin and Elaine Blanchard.
