Krewe of Centurions - KREWE INFORMATION - Route
Metairie 7:00 p.m.

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. (More information...)

SUNDAY, February 26th

Corps de Napoleon - KREWE INFORMATION - Route
Metairie 5:30 p.m.

The Corps de Napoleon was established in 1980 to give Jefferson Parish an excitingly different approach to Mardi Gras. From its inception, the Corps de Napoleon's goal has been to honor the French heritage of New Orleans and the surrounding parishes. Unlike other organizations who chose Greek or Roman mythological figures as their namesakes, the Corps de Napoleon instead looked to France for its roots and selected Napoleon, France's greatest hero.

The Corps de Napoleon parade is organized similar to the manner by which Napoleon organized his armies during his reign. After Napoleon conquered a country, a new army would be formed and be referred to as a "Corps", combining with other units from different countries to form Napoleon's Grand Army. Similar to the French army, this Carnival organization is made up of Corps, or float groups, each headed by a Lieutenant.

As this "army" of bead, cup and doubloon-throwing revelers roll through Metairie on the Sunday evening before Mardi Gras Day, the Corps are led by its Captains and Officers (representing military figures). The Captains and Officers float feature a sculpture which depicts David's (Dah-veed's) painting of Napoleon crossing the Alps during the Italian campaign. The Emperor Napoleon and Empress Josephine are also depicted by the royal monarchs as they reign over the parade, Coronation Celebration, and After-Parade festivities. The Emperor's float depicts the "Arc de Triomphe" in Paris and is pulled by a team of four white horses.

Krewe of Saturn -KREWE INFORMATION
Roman scholars thought this mythological figure so important that they named a planet and a day (Saturday), for him. Saturn was the god of agriculture, time and celebration. In his honor the ancients even called their festival of merrymaking the Saturnalia, an ancestor of Mardi Gras. The krewe was founded in 1983 and presented its first two processions in the City of Kenner, then moved its parade route to Metairie in 1986. The next year Saturn returned to Kenner, then moved to Orleans Parish in 1993. Since its formation, the organization has been very active in fund-raising for charitable causes.
