KNIGHTS & LADIES OF PETER CLAVER PRESENT MARDI GRAS REVELRY AT OUR LADY OF SORROWS
The French Quarter came alive on Chicago’s West Side at Our Lady of Sorrows Parish, 3141 West Jackson Boulevard, on February 17. Hosted by the Knights & Ladies of Peter Claver, the Mardi Gras celebration went on into the night with costumes, beads, hot music, delicious Creole cooking, and lots of fun.
Blues, soul, and jazz song stylist Robin Watson opened the festivities with Fats Waller’s anthem, This Joint Is Jumpin’. With champagne flowing and the music turned up loud, the annual Mardi Gras shifted into high gear.
