This Saturday, February 3rd is the Krewe of Centaur Parade in Shreveport but the party starts the night before! Friday night is the load in party where the Krewe prepares the floats for the next day and they're inviting the public to come out for FREE!

Now if you've never been to a float loading party this is the best way to get up close and personal with the floats you'll see in the parade. But it's more than that! This is how you can get to know the krewe members and the best chance you have at getting some of those specialty beads if you're lucky.

The party is open for all ages and perfect for the entire family kicking off around 5:30pm! Admission is free and the party for Friday is at the Krewe of Centaur Den located at 351 Aero Drive in Shreveport. Bring some cash because food and drinks will be available for purchase.
