Founded in 1979, the Krewe of Caesar takes the name of an actual historical figure rather than a myth.
Formed by more than 800 men and women members, Caesar is the largest Carnival organization in Jefferson Parish history. This organization is known for spectacular costumes for members of the royal court, with fiber-optics, neon and three-dimensional figures adorning the enormous costume collars. The Krewe of Caesar is also known as the Roma Club.
Past Grandmarshalls include celebrities from a variety of backgrounds. These celebrities include baseball player Billy Martin, cartoon mascots like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and even pop singer David Archuleta in 2009.
The Krewe’s signature float is the Hydra, a mythic beast that had the body of a serpent with many heads and known for emerging from it’s swamp home and attacking local villagers and their cattle.
