About the Krewe
The Krewe of Centurions was established in 1979 by a partnership of businessmen from the Harahan-River Ridge area. After a few years of parading, Centurions moved to its current Metairie route. Centurions long history and tradition of parading is just one of the many reasons that people keep on coming back. One of the greatest aspects of the Centurions parade is our dedication to making it a memorable experience both on the parade day and throughout the year. By holding several events throughout the year to keep the Mardi Gras season going, our Krewe of more than 300 male and female members strives to make Centurions an organization for all people; that is, a fun, family-oriented experience. Our Krewe is, without a doubt, considered one of the best parades in Greater New Orleans area.
