Runnels Elementary School on Feb. 13 presented its 2015 Krewe of Runnels Royale at the annual Mardi Gras Coronation held in the school’s Gladys Hague Runnels Theatre.
Two royal courts were named at the event, a Petite Court for first- through third grades and a Grande Court for fourth- through sixth grades. All court members were selected by random drawing.
On the Grande Court were Queen Savannah Fekete, King Alex Vallaire and krewe members MacKenzie Blanchard, Jake Haase, Baron Stevenson and Taylor Woods. Petite Court members were Queen Lily Hayden, King Rossi Harrison and krewe members Matthew Campbell, Sofia Dodd, Mason Pizzalato and Cameron Stevenson.
Mardi Gras festivities also included a parade of royalty, performances by Runnels bands, group songs, cheers and dances by each elementary grade and king cake.
