This period in history has influenced the start of the new nation. Europa has members representing all 44 European Countries in colorful costumes of each country.
Europa was formed by a global group of professionals that wanted to bring the Gulf Coast krewe life to the worlds stage by following their motto of “Bringing Our Small World Together” while celebrating history. Europa travels to major parades across the globe, has appeared recently in the Juneau Alaska 4th of July celebrations, in St Patrick’s in Dublin, Boston and Tampa, America’s Hometown Thanksgiving in Plymouth Ma in 2021 celebrating the 400th anniversary of Thanksgiving, annually at the Gatlinburg Tn Fantasy of Lights and will be appearing in the Chicago’s 2022 Thanksgiving Parade.
