The Rotary Club of St. Charles Parish named Kristal Breaux and Naomi Davis as its first Alligator Festival queens.
Breaux and Davis will reign over the 2018 Alligator Festival and will spend the next year as ambassadors for the festival and the Rotary Club of St. Charles Parish. Breaux will represent the Alligator Festival at the Louisiana Association of Fairs and Festivals convention in February 2019.
Breaux, 22, was crowned Miss Alligator Festival. She is the daughter of Ken Breaux and Sandy Garza of Bayou Gauche, and is a second-year graduate student at Nicholls State University.
“Growing up in St. Charles Parish has allowed me to experience the Alligator Festival since I was a little girl,” Breaux said. “It is now an honor and privilege to be a part of this new tradition of Alligator Festival Queens. I am incredibly excited for my reign as I prepare to start traveling across the state promoting this amazing festival while working with the Rotary Club of St. Charles Parish. I look forward to this year’s festival, and I invite everyone to attend as we celebrate our 39th year.”
