IW Fat Friday Cajun Dinner & Mardi Gras Party History

The IW Fat Friday Cajun Dinner & Mardi Gras Party began for the first time on February 5, 2015. It was held in the Kent Center immediately following the Annual IWKnights Lenten Fish Fry, which is held in the Lower Level of Incarnate Word Parish. You can learn more about the Fish Fry by clicking here.

A Ringing Endorsement.....

It was indeed a festive evening in the Kent Center for the Knights of Columbus Mardi Gras Party.
The IWKnights were aided by a few parishioners in helping to spread the word about the party.
Over 200 people attended which I thought was excellent, considering this was the first time for the event. There were people of all age ranges, which prompted a few of the “younger” attendees to comment on how nice that was to be able to be with parishioners they might not normally see in their own social circles.
There also was a band providing great music. I especially enjoyed the shrimp. That is saying a lot coming from a not-fond-of-fish person! It was a wonderful evening and many of those who were there commented to me that they would definitely be there next year! (hint hint knights.) Thanks to all who made this possible and all who came.
