Knights of NemesisMar 4th, 2011 | By Michelle Provencher | Category: Top Story
Sunny skies and warm weather provided a pleasant backdrop to the sixth annual Knights of Nemesis parade, which rolled down the street in Chalmette on the afternoon of Feb. 26.
Hoards of St. Bernardians — living inside and outside of the parish — turned out for the spectacle, and left with lots of loot.
Beads, cups, keychains and toys were tossed from the many floats that lined West Judge Perez Drive to the happy children that shouted, “Hey, Mister, throw me somethin!”
Cheerleading squads, dance teams and marching bands from St. Bernard schools paraded, too, entertaining the crowds in between floats.
The Knights of Nemesis, which started after Hurricane Katrina as a way to return to normalcy, proved to be a popular addition to the parish’s carnival festivities.
