Guest Gena Millslagle, the Captain of Krewe du Sauvage, a Mardi Gras Krewe in Lake Charles, joins hosts Brady and Jillian on Louisiana’s Playground to discuss the Mardi Gras experience in Lake Charles from the Krewe’s perspective. She details Lake Charles traditions, the lavish Mardi Gras balls put on by the Krewes and what’s it like to prepare for a multi-hour parade.



Gena Millslagle is the Captain of Krewe du Sauvage, a Mardi Gras Krewe in Lake Charles.  

She’s a nursing professional by trade, and a Krewe leader because it’s just so much fun. Gena has previously served as President of the Krewe and holds the honor of reigning as Queen Sophie VIII with her late husband, Erik Millslagle, as King Henri VIII.
