Metairie Mardi Gras Parade Schedule 2014

The Krewe of Centurions

 In 1979 a group of six businessmen got together with a common goal. It was their desire to provide the people of Jefferson Parish with a carnival club which was second to none, although most would agree somewhat different from the norm. They wanted to be able to provide a beautiful presentation each year which would be dedicated to children of all ages. We share the traditions begun by those six men, as they have evolved over time, and continue to evolve through the ideas and hard work of our present leaders. All of their dreams and desires have become a reality and delight the child in each of us with a spectacular ball and parade presentation each year.

About the Book
Never before has the history of the Mardi Gras celebration been looked at this way. Errol Laborde focuses on the first 60 years of the organized celebration in New Orleans, a period that bridges the premiere parade of the Mistick Krewe of Comus and the founding of the Zulu organization. Along the way he discovers fascinating characters; including a poetic journalist who survived a bloody attack, an archduke looking for fun and a would-be king finding religion. Laborde also links an African War with Custer¹s Last Stand and disproves some of the conventional wisdom about Carnival¹s early history. This is the most important contemporary book on early Carnival history. And it fun to read too.
