Krewe of CenturionsFounded in 1979, the all-male Krewe of Centurions decided to name themselves after the fabled group of Roman warriors and leaders of men.

Originally formed by a partnership of businessmen from the Harahan - River Ridge area, Centurions paraded for two seasons on Jefferson Highway before taking up the Veterans Memorial Parade route in 1981. One of the greatest aspects of the Centurion parades is their attention to children and families in choosing themes that can be enjoyed by all. Formed by more than 350 male riders, this krewe is a social organization that has family-oriented festivities throughout the entire year.
