The Krewe of Argus was founded in 1972 by several civic-minded Jefferson Parish businessmen and rolls on Mardi Gras Day. Over one million family-oriented spectators line the Veterans Boulevard route in Metairie, Louisiana to catch their assortments of specialty throws. The Krewe is comprised of over 450 riders- male, female, and children- as well as guest Celebrities and Marching Bands. Each year Argus crowns a Special King, Queen, and Royal Court from its own membership to ride as Royalty. They roll March 5th at 10AM in Metairie.
