About the krewe…
The Krewe of Sobek was formed by nine visionaries who wanted to bring the spirit of Mardi Gras to the minority communities of Shreveport. Years later, they are still going strong and will continue to grow and remain true to their motto “Rebirth, Strength and Tenacity”. For more information, check out their website.
