Founded in 1979, Caesar is the largest Carnival organization in Jefferson Parish history with more than 800 male and female members. The krewe was the first to introduce lighted, animated headdresses at Mardi Gras and has wowed the crowd with neon and fiber-optic floats.

Past grand marshals have included baseball player Billy Martin, pop singer David Archuleta, actress Jamie Lynn Spears, New Orleans Saint Thomas Morstead, and characters like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Batman, SpongeBob, Iron Man, Spiderman and Darth Vader. In the past, the krewe has thrown lighted beads and light-up foam tubes.

The krewe's signature float is the Hydra, a terrifying mythic beast with the body of a serpent and many heads. Hydra is known for emerging from the swamp and attacking the local villagers.

The organization’s pre-parade party is called the "The Caesar Bash."
