Krewe of Sparta parades through Saraland

SARALAND, Ala. (WKRG) — Krewe of Sparta will parade Saturday at noon through Saraland!

Before Krewe of Sparta, Sraland did not have a mystic society or a Mardi Gras parade. In 2018, a person proposed the Saraland Mardi Gras Society and became founder and president, according to the Mobile Mask.

And then, the co-ed mystic society Krewe of Sparta was born.
