A glittering entrance to the Mardi Gras season, the Twelfth Night celebration at the Lake Charles Civic Center draws thousands to see the grand promenade of the kings, queens, and captains of more than 50 krewes. The Twelfth Night tradition parallels the three kings’ entry at the ancient nativity twelve days after Jesus’ birth. The 2013 royal court will wave goodbye to all in preparation for the 2014 court, which will be in full display during the Royal Gala on Monday, March 3. In the spirit of gift-bearing, everyone present at the Southwest Louisiana celebration is given a piece of king cake, and 12 grand prizes are given to visitors who find a surprise in the cake. There is dancing and more revelry following the promenade.
