P.R.I.D.E. Award

The Krewe of Gemini received a P.R.I.D.E. Award for their leadership and involvement in Mardi Gras 2010, which was named the “City Wide Event of the Year” by the Shreveport – Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau.

Shreveport-Bossier Mardi Gras is a perfect example of what a community of people can do when they come together. According to the LSU Shreveport Center for Business and Economic Research economic impact analysis of the 2007 Centaur and Gemini parades, Mardi Gras generates over $17 million in direct revenue from out-of-town visitors, with a total of $32 million in overall economic impact to our community.

Krewes that were responsible for 2010 Mardi Gras parade organization each received an award. Accepting the awards for the various krewes:

Krewe of Asclepius – Captain Doug Kochenderfer
Krewe of Centaur – Darryl Folse
Krewe of Gemini – John Hubbard
Krewe of Harambee – Captain Verna Smith
Krewe of Highland – Captain Bob Marak
Krewe of Sobek – Renee Davis

The P.R.I.D.E. Awards, held annually during Tourism Week, were presented on May 13, 2010, at the Horseshoe Riverdome. P.R.I.D.E. stands for “Proud Residents Involved in Developing our Economy”.
