The Krewe of Centaur was a organized in 1991. The Krewe is bound together by the common goals of building a better community and the pursuit of good family fun. The Krewe of Centaur Mardi Gras Parade has grown over the years to become the largest parade in the Ark-La-Tex. We are the largest krewe in north Louisiana, and rival most those in New Orleans. We have gotten bigger and better with every year. Our parade is 2 Saturdays (that is 10 days) before Fat Tuesday.
The Krewe of Centaur was named after the mythological half-man half-horse in recognition of the horse racing and gaming industry in Northwest Louisiana. We like our nick name the “Fun Krewe” because we love to have fun!
