Let’s roll! The Krewe of Centaur turns 28

The 2019 Krewe of Centaur Parade rolls February 23 with Grand Marshal Jordan Davis

  • Joel Rodgers

If being named after the mythological half-man half-horse in recognition of the horse racing and gaming industry in Northwest Louisiana isn’t cool, then I don’t know what is.

The Krewe of Centaur Mardi Gras Parade rolls through Shreveport Saturday Feb. 23, for the 28th time. This years Grand Marshal is Jordan Davis.

Wanna see the floats up close and get your bead grabbin’ hands on some speciality beads? Check out the float loading party Friday Feb. 22 at The Krewe of Centaur den, 351 Aero Drive Shreveport, Louisiana. Food and drink will be available for purchase. I’m personally going to enjoy a hotdog from Mickey the Hot Dog Man, he’ll be there.

The Centaur Parade has grown over the years to become the largest parade in the Ark-La-Tex, they have the largest krewe in north Louisiana, and they’re bigger than several krewes in New Orleans. The parade starts in downtown Shreveport and will roll at 4:30.
