Essentially, the Krewe of Blarney is established as an organization to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and to promote the Pass Christian parade.
The Kaptains’ Klub is comprised primarily of business persons and state and county elected officials. Cohesion of the Klub is brought about by like-minded, agreeable persons who each share an equal vote in decision making.
The concept is to gather a generous group of persons who will promote the annual parade, select the grand marshal and colleen for each year, and supervise the parade as well as conduct two “Socials” on that day. – One Private and One Public.
The two socials consist of a pre-parade “Toasting” of the dignitaries and a post-parade “Corn Beef and Cabbage Irish Bash” free to all Parade participants, family and guests.
The Kaptains of the Klub wear a Tuxedo garnished by a green sash and lead the parade as they carry beads and Flower Canes in greeting parade viewers. The “Walk” is less than one-mile distance from City Hall and back to City Hall.
It is most desirous to have a harmonious group that will seek not only to advance the business climate of Pass Christian and to enhance it’s economy, but also to promote and heighten each other’s business endeavors and interests.
The Krewe of Blarney made its first appearance in 1995.
The Krewe had a short respite due to Hurricane Katrina – reorganized in 2010.
