Krewe of King Arthur and MerlinFounded in 1977 on the West Bank, King Arthur now parades on New Orleans' Uptown route.

The Krewe of King Arthur's 450+ members are best known for their afternoon parade on the first Sunday of Mardi Gras, commonly known as "Family Sunday". This Krewe celebrates with dozens of marching units (floats, bands, etc.), which make up the King Arthur procession. They make their own floats and costumes by hand.

King Arthur labels themselves as New Orleans’ friendliest Krewe. They have been and will always be open to all races and sexes.

The 2014 theme was "King Arthur Has the Blues." The krewe threw plush spears, flying discs and balls, all with a blue theme.
