Leger to reign over all female Krewe of Nereids

Leger to reign over all female Krewe of Nereids

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

Reigning as Queen Nereids XXXIV is Roxxy Leger of Golden Meadow. Roxxy is the wife of Quinton Leger, daughter on Tom and Hope Pitre and mother to Russ Leger and Teddy Leger. The queen’s siblings are Kitty Prudhomme and Thomas (T-Tom) Pitre IV.

Attending the Queen as Pages will be the Queen’s two sons, Russ Anthony Leger and Teddy Thomas Leger, Kami Jane Pitre, daughter of Thomas (T-Tom) Pitre and Amber Rebstock, and Bailee Michelle Thompson, daughter of Keith and Kelly Thompson.

The theme of this year’s parade is “Boogie on Down”. The parade will roll on the traditional route through the town of Golden Meadow on Sunday, February 11, beginning at 6 p.m. and will feature beautiful single and double-decker illuminated floats with 200 members 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 consists of Jenifer Cheramie, Gwen Pitre, Charlene Griffin, Elaine Blanchard, Glenda Sanamo, Lily Jambon, Willie Cheramie, and Sheila Cheramie.

Everyone is invited to come out and enjoy this spectacular free event.
