This year marks the krewe’s 18th year in operation. The Sirens’ organization was created to present a Mardi Gras street parade that brings in spectators and business to our community. We have 56 active members. In addition to appearing in four Mardi Gras parades every year, we provide the annual Gail Pond Memorial Scholarship and support several local charities.
