Can we all breathe a sigh of relief knowing that Mardi Gras parades will roll this spring in Shreveport? I know I am! And I'm ready to let the good times roll with the Krewe of Centaur!

One of the things that originally drew me to Centaur was the amount of work they do in the Shreveport-Bossier community. Of course, it didn't hurt that they know how to pass a good time;) Plus, it was where I felt comfortable and a part of a 'family.'

Over the years, I've attended, reported on, and hosted a TON of Mardi Gras events, so I might know a thing or two about Mardi Gras in northwest Louisiana. With that being said, I'm a huge fan of the things area krewes do in and for our community and especially, the Krewe of Centaur.

Before we get into why Centaur is so awesome, here are a few important dates for you to add to your calendar. 12th Night, the kickoff to the local Mardi Gras season, is Saturday, January 8th, 2022 at the Bossier City Civic Center. The Krewe of Centaur 30th Grand Bal is Saturday, February 5, 2022, at the Shreveport Convention Center and the parade is Saturday, February 19, 2022. All hail!
