The Krewe of Kings is organized by veteran float builder Mac Cantrell, Jr. The co-ed krewe has approximately 180 members and will roll with 17 floats. The krewe’s goal is to bring floats with more elaborate artwork to Metairie parade route.

Cantrell founded the Krewe of Thor in 1974 and served as its captain for four decades. Thor stopped paraded in Metairie after 2013.
