East Northport’s Mardi Gras Celebration

Residents from East Northport reveled in the spirit of Mardi Gras during a special menu lunch, while listening to the music of New Orleans born and raised jazz trumpeter and singer, Louis Armstrong. The party continued with the ceremony of The King Cake and the coronation of The Bristal’s Queen of Mardi Gras. Queen Gertrude and her chosen King, Lou, were both crowned by last year’s king and queen – Tony and Gunny. They sat on their thrones to face their royal subjects, and will reign together for one year – until they pass their crowns on to next year’s winners in 2017!
