King Freret IX
In 2020 I was King Freret IX.
France 2 sent journalists to cover our parade as part of their mid-day news. I am intereviewed briefly in the first and last of their daily segments:
(As of August 2023, these videos are missing from France TV’s site. If they don’t return, I will eventually find a place to host the copies I downloaded.)
The second segment gets into some neighborhoods, history, and Bobby giving a tour of our floats.
The fourth covers the indians, Krewe of Cork walking parade, and Original Illinois Club debutante ball. You can see me being Bobby’s personal audience at the end.
The final segment on February 28th is all about our parade day.
