The Krewe of Alegria, an all women krewe, was founded in 1986 by Rocky Valdez and Dianne Henry - they celebrate 30 years of parade participation this year! Alegria’s theme “Good Will Ambassadors Working Throughout The Tampa Bay Community, Civic Minded Through Our Volunteer Service” suits them well. Alegria founded it's own 501(c)3 charity in 2007. Alegria’s Kickin’ for Kids, Inc. has distributed over 3000 pairs of new athletic school shoes to needy children in our community. Our sponsor, A. Kilbride Insurance supports our krewe and charity, their motto is "protecting the Tampa Bay Area since 1954”.
