Mardi Gras Ball Season is in full swing; with its grand spectacles and women donning amazing gowns on full display and men dressed to the nines. Of course, because this is a New Orleans party; there is always the best food and music on full display during this amazing and special time for our City.
On Saturday January 20, 2018 this was the case as the all Black Krewe of NOMTOC held its Annual Ball at the La Nouvelle Orleans Ballroom of the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
Reigning as Queen NOMTOC XLVIII (2018) was Miss Rae’ Lyn Denise Fazande, daughter of Mr. Ronald and Mrs. Deborah Fazande Sr. and this year’s NOMTOC King is Mr. Barry Charles Guy Sr.
NOMTOC “New Orleans’ Most Talked of Club” was founded in 1951 and began parading on the West Bank of New Orleans in 1970. Since its inaugural year NOMTOC has become one of the premiere parades during Mardi Gras season.
Data News Weekly was there to capture this incredible event.
