Mardi Gras Galveston

-207 Days
Until King Gambrinus Lights Up the Night with his fabulous Procession down Seawall Boulevard.

From a Vision to Reality

From reality to 25 years of celebration and frivolity supporting the wonderful Island of Galveston. The Krewe of Gambrinus, in 2014, will parade down famous Seawall Boulevard thrilling 200,000 of our closest friends. From that first vision of Larry Del Papa and Budweiser when the Krewe of Brew celebrated the History of Beer, 24 themes have been the basis of the fabulous parades as King Gambrinus Lights Up the Night. Festivals of the World; The British Isles, Gambrinus Style; Red White and Krewe; Singing in the Rainforests; Waltz Across Texas; Cheers to our Buds, the Del Papas. These are but of few of the entertaining backdrops for the 25 Mardi Gras seasons.

Gambrinus the Krewe, is over 300 members strong, and will celebrate their 25 successful years with an extravagant Coronation Ball in the Frances Moody Ballroom at Moody Gardens. King Gambrinus XXV will be crowned along with Her Royal Highness the Queen. Each will have found that elusive baby in the King's Cake, and will begin a year of recognition and service to the Krewe and to Galveston.
