About the krewe…
According to their website, the Krewe of Centaur started to build a better community and the pursuit of good family fun. The krewe chose the name of the half-man, half-horse Centaur in recognition of the horse racing and gaming industry in the area. It’s one of the largest krewes in the area and in Louisiana.
