The Krewe of Good Friends of the Oaks (KOGFOTO) is excited to announce their 34th annual Port Allen Mardi Gras parade on February 11th at 1:00 p.m. will be led by Mr. Michael “Mike” Misuraca, Sr. as Grand Marshall. The Queen and King will be revealed at the annual ball to take place on Saturday, January 13th.
Misuraca has been a resident of Port Allen since 1965 and a member of the krewe for numerous years. He worked as an educator in WBR Parish for over 30 years and was former principal of Port Allen High School. “I am truly honored and humbled” said Misuraca when notified he had been chosen as Grand Marshall by krewe members. He is looking forward to leading the krewe through Port Allen.
This year the KOGFOTO parade theme is “Disney in the Oaks”. According to John Blackwell, Parade Chairman, the parade will highlight floats, local bands and new surprises. It’s not too late to enter your float, antique car, truck, or walk the parade. The parade begins and ends at the corner of the LA-1 Service Rd. and Oaks Ave. Parade route, entry forms and parade information is available on the krewe’s website www.kreweofgoodfriendsoftheoaks.com or by contacting John Blackwell at 901-219-2763.
