Mysti Krewe of Nimbus formed in 2010 to celebrate Louisiana Mardi Gras, and bring that spirit of joy to Portland. The Krewe is composed of both former Louisiana residents and many locals who love the food, music, and culture of Louisiana.
The Krewe's charitable wing, 'The Goode Werks Krewe" raises funds for non-profits in Oregon and Louisiana with similar missions.
This year donations will be split between the Crag Law Center in Portland (http://crag.org/) that provides free/low cost legal aid for environmental organizations, and Louisiana Environmental Action Network (https://leanweb.org/) providing education, empowerment, advocacy, and support for community groups tackling environmental issues.
The theme for this year's Ball will be announced on Twelfth Night January 6th in keeping with New Orleans tradition.
Save the date for the Portland Mardi Gras Day Parade on Fat Tuesday - February 13th - the Tuesday after the Ball
Come celebrate and laissez les bon temps rouler!
