Join the City of Gretna in welcoming the
Krewe of Gretna Truck Parade on
Mardi Gras Day!


What is a Truck Parade

The Krewe of Gretna Truck Parade is a parade organization that is focused on providing fun for all ages.  Each truck float is organized by individual float captains and their krewe members.  Krewes are typically formed of family members, work groups, social clubs, schools organizations, or individual riders.

There are two ways to join the Krewe of Gretna.  You can either join as a float captain or as an individual float rider.  Float captains have a great experience of leading their own unique truck float.  Or, if you prefer to ride as an individual float rider, there are always several float captains that need to fill up those last few spots on their float.
