Membership Application

Rolling down the streets as Metairie’s largest male and female parade, the Krewe of Centurions offers a unique Mardi Gras experience. The krewe is a family-friendly organization, offering fun and exciting events. Our formal celebration ball, the casual nights out and every event in between bring the enthusiasm of Mardi Gras all year long, and it doesn’t stop there! From our signature throws to our masked men and women in wigs, our members experience the thrill of riding in an exceptional parade. Bystanders alike get to have a touch of the fun, as they are entertained by a parade with an “in-town” feel with our old line themed floats and catch an array of throws coming their way. They are always looking for men and women who are interested in joining their krewe, and want you to be a part of the fun and experience the excitement that only the Krewe of Centurions has to offer! See their membership application below.

Krewe of Excalibur

Krewe of Excalibur

The Krewe of Excalibur parades along Veterans Memorial Boulevard in a family-friendly atmosphere that millions of people have enjoyed over the years. Over the years they have catered to this atmosphere by creating a fun time with bands or dance groups between every float, throwing items specially designed for children, like youth t-shirts, stuffed castles and hand decorated shields, and by having family related socials throughout the year. They are also the first parade of the season, so it’s very well attended by the public.

The Krewe of Excalibur’s unique theme takes Mardi Gras to the medieval. Their krewe celebrates the best traditions of New Orleans, King Arthur, Queen Guinevere and the Knights of the Round Table. If you know the difference between a knight and a lord, a squire and a steward, and a lady and a maiden, you’re already a member. Their club is known for lavish, over-the-top court costumes.
