Zulu Queen arrives as carnival season revs up

Kenner, LA -- The Louis Armstrong International Airport was all abuzz as members of the Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club strutted through the terminal to announce the arrival of their 2013 queen, Mrs. Monica Beal Givens.

"Words can't explain it right now because I'm just, actually I'm shaking a little bit right now, but it's just a wonderful feeling, such an honor and one that will never be taken for granted," says Givens.

The Queen and her court had just arrived from a trip to Houston with much fan-fair as departing tourists whipped out their phones to capture their last taste of the "Big Easy."

As Zulu second-lined at the airport, the Krewe of Little Rascals paraded down Veterans Boulevard.

David Herkes had a front row seat to the action for very special reason.

"It's very exciting I get to see my daughter, on the float, she's a maid in little rascals," says Herkes.
