Every year Les Cavaliers gathers together to simply celebrate the culture of Mardi Gras. We are a krewe who believes in year round festivities! If you don't need an excuse to party, then Les Cavalier is the krewe for you!
The History of Mardi Gras:
Christmas, is a 12th day annual celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ ending on the twelfth night of Christmas, or January 5th. January 6 marks the Celebration of the Epiphany, or the revelation of God in His son as a human. The Epiphany is celebrated with Carnivals beginning on January 6th and lasting until the day before Ash Wednesday. During these celebrations, it was common to reverse roles so the servants were served by rich people. Mardi Gras, French for “Fat Tuesday”, refers to the feasts leading up to the fasting that begins on Ash Wednesday with Lent and lasts until Easter.  
The Meaning Behind Les Cavaliers:

Cavalier (/ˌkævəˈlɪər/) was a name first used by Parliamentarians as a term of abuse for the wealthier male Royalist supporters of King Charles I and his son Charles II during the English Civil War, the Interregnum, and the Restoration (1642 –c. 1679). It was later adopted by the Royalists themselves. Although it originally related to political and social attitudes and behavior, of which clothing was a very small part, it has subsequently become strongly identified with the fashionable clothing of the court at the time.
