Mardi Gras Krewes
The Town of Logansport currently has one Mardi Gras Krewe, the Krewe of Aquarius. The Krewe has an annual parade during the Mardi Gras celebration in Louisiana. The parade consists of a varied number of floats, motorcycle groups, antique cars and any other approved group wanting to March or participate as a part of the parade. Each float entry decorates their float with the theme of the celebration, which is announced by the Krewe of Aquarius. Each float entry pays a fee to participate in the parade and purchases all of their own throws.
The Krewe of Aquarius selects a theme for the coming years Mardi Gras Ball and Parade. The Krewe also nominates and selects the King and Queen of Mardi Gras. It is an honor to be selected as the King or Queen of Mardi Gras. That years King and Queen Reigns supreme over the annual Mardi Gras celebration, reaches out to the children of the community by visiting children in area schools and other facilities within the Parish. The King and Queen participate in all other events and parades in an official capacity held or organized by the River City Events Planning Committee and the Krewe of Aquarius. Visit our photo gallery to view some of the Kings and Queens of celebration past.
The parade is a fun safe event for all of DeSoto Parish and surrounding communities. Come to Logansport, spend the day in our River City and then line the streets at 6:00 PM to join the Krewe of Aquarius and the crowd. Be ready to shout “Throw Me Something Mister “!
The parade begins at the Logansport High School, with lineup of float entries beginning at 3:00pm, judging of floats starting at 4:30 and the parade rolls at 6:00pm. The parade will turn south on Hwy 5, then west on Hwy 84/Main Street, turning north on Second Street to Veterans Memorial Blvd., where the parade will disband.
