In 2005, The Conde Explorers became the first integrated Mardi Gras society to parade in downtown Mobile. The society currently has about a hundred members and welcomes men and women of all races. In addition to its parade and ball, The Conde Explorers hold several parties throughout the year and its members perform volunteer work.
The Conde Explorers were featured in the award-winning documentary about Mobile’s Mardi Gras, The Order of Myths.
The Conde Explorers will parade in downtown Mobile (Route A), Saturday, January 30, 2010 at 6:30pm. The society’s ball will be held at the Mobile Convention Center after the parade. Invitations to the ball, which features a band, food, and drinks, are forty dollars and are available from members.
Come join the fun and help make Mobile Mardi Gras history! Membership applications can be found here. For more information, call president Terrence Bridges at (251) 689-1471 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
