Baker Middle Band & PRAMS Dancers Entertain Biloxi's Krewe Of Neptune
The Krewe of Neptune was founded in 1981. Over the past 29 years, Neptune has had members from as far away as Houston and Atlanta. With the Krewe selecting the Gulf Coast as its home, it was only befitting to select a name that is related to the water. Neptune is the Roman god of the sea and was a fitting choice. The Krewe of Neptune is patterned after the old-line New Orleans krewes. The Krewe of Neptune’s first parade was held on Mardi Gras Day in 1983 on the streets of downtown Biloxi. The parade is unique on the Coast in that all the Krewe’s floats are commissioned in New Orleans and transported to Biloxi. The organization is divided into smaller Krewes with a Line Lieutenant in charge of each Krewe. Each of these Krewes’ floats represents something different pertaining to the theme of the ball.
