The Krewe of Gambrinus Lights Up The Night Parade enjoyed large crowds and beautiful weather Saturday night. These photos were taken by Juan Peña
The Krewe of Gambrinus, named after the Patron Saint of Brewing, was formed in 1989 with the first "Gambrinus Lights Up the Night", rolling in February 1990.
As one of the two Galveston Super Parades, the Krewe launches 14 Huge Floats, and just as many marching bands, tossing over 600,000 beads and trinkets to over 300,000 screaming spectators.
Fireworks are arranged along the parade route to top it all of with a bang!
The Krewe of Gambrinus, is a not-for-profit organization, chartered for the support of tourism and underprivileged children in Galveston, Harris, and surrounding counties.
