Lords and ladies. Dukes and duchesses. A jester here and there. It’s Carnival season in the Capital Region and everyone loves a party and bit of pomp and circumstance. That’s why every weekend this month, Mardi Gras krewe members are donning their finery and stepping out in style. Thousands will be at the balls. But it’s not all frivolous fun and games: Many krewes have a philanthropic drive that underlies the merriment.
