Krewe of Argus
The Krewe of Argus was founded in 1972 by several Jefferson Parish civic-minded business men. This family friendly Parade rolls on Mardi Gras Day in the New Orleans Metropolitan Area. Over one million family-oriented spectators line the Veterans Blvd. route in Metairie, Louisiana to catch its assortments of specialty throws. The Krewe is comprised of over 450 male, female, and children riders, as well as guest Celebrities and a Marching Band. Each year the Argus crowns a Special King, Queen, and Royalty Court from its own membership to ride as Royalty. In past Parades, Argus has created special floats designed to honor our heroes in the Armed Services and local celebrities such as Artist George Rodrigue and his Blue Dog.
